MEDFORD, Ore. — While nothing in this world is certain but death and taxes, Chick-fil-A coming to Southern Oregon is a little closer to being a good possibility. The City of Medford confirmed on Wednesday that the company has submitted building plans for approval.
Chick-fil-A filed for a building permit back in April. Now that they have submitted building plans, the City will have three months to evaluate them and either approve or deny them.
The company was rumored to be eyeing the Northgate Business Park off Rossanley back in April, and that appears to be confirmed. The submitted building plans put the new location at 10 Rossanley Drive.
Submitting plans for approval does not ensure that Chick-fil-A is coming — anything could change over the next several months. However, the move reinforces the company's apparent desire to put a new location down in Medford.
A representative from the City of Medford said that, optimistically, the restaurant wouldn't break ground until late 2019 if Chick-fil-A does follow through with development.
