City Commission Gives Thumbs Up to New Pollo Tropical

Pollo Thumbs UpIt looks like Lauderhill is getting a new Pollo Tropical. Last night the City Commission granted a special exemption for a fast food restaurant with a drive-through in the Invererrary Falls shopping center on West Oakland Park Boulevard. The plan is to demolish the vacant building which was once a Blockbuster Video and erect a new structure. One resident who ones a house adjacent to the shopping center objected, complaining that people are crossing her property and leaving fast food trash in her yard. City staff agreed to work with the shopping center owner to find a solution. The Commission’s approval was unanimous.
