Lee County--  A new restaurant is on its way to Lee County after commissioners amended an ordinance to pave the way for it.

Chili's plans to build at the southeast corner of the Wal-Mart parking lot on Ledo Road but that was too close to Byne Memorial Baptist Church.

Tuesday night, commissioners reduced the distance that restaurants serve alcohol must be from churches and schools.   Lee County development leaders are happy they tweaked the ordinance.

"It's really no different than the restaurant location of Logan's in Dougherty County several years back in reference to the distance from Deerfield Windsor," said Winston Oxford of the Lee County Chamber of Commerce.

Lee County leaders say construction should begin as soon as architects and engineers finish their plans.
