OGDENSBURG A small sliver of land owned by the Ogdensburg Bowl may be sold off to enable the planned Dunkin Donuts restaurant to offer more parking.
David T. Smith, owner of the Ogdensburg Bowl, said the sale is under negotiation.
The land constitutes a small triangle that would give the restaurant five more parking spaces, additional room for loading and unloading products and a better location for its dumpsters, according to plans submitted to the city Planning Board.
The restaurant, to be the 86th Dunkin Donuts franchise owned by a company based in Portland, Maine, is set to have construction begin in April. The main entrance will be on Paterson Street across from McDonalds.
At Tuesdays Planning Board meeting the modified plans by Dunkin Donuts were given unanimous support. Board member Frank Perretta said the adjustments would make the overall proposal better.
The new parking spots, bringing the total to 18, would largely be for employees. The restaurant will employ 15 people.
