Marion City Council Okays Matthews-Arby’s Trade

The Marion City Council has given final approval to a trade of properties that will allow a local car dealership to expand and a fast-food restaurant to build a bigger and better facility.  Plus the move will extend a side street to the Bypass and improve traffic flow.

The Arby’s north location will move to the site of the former General Tire store that was closed and sold to Matthews Buick/GMC.  Matthews will trade the old General Tire property for the Arby’s property so they can build a new Arby’s there.  It will also allow Raintree Drive to be extended to the Bypass and improve traffic flow in the area.
