New Chinese Food Restaurant Opening in Woodbury

The Zoning Commission lent its support to the new business venture.


A Chinese food restaurant is set to open at the former location of Heavenly Gifts in Woodbury.

The Woodbury Zoning Commission, at its Jan. 8 meeting at the Senior Community Center, lent its support to the new business and asked the land use office to issue a change of use permit for the Chinese food restaurant.

Chairman Martin Overton noted the following details on the new business:

  • Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, seven days a week
  • Closed on Thanksgiving
  • Three tables present, mainly a take-out restaurant

Since most of this educated discussion, on either side, has been exercised with a pleasant civility, might I suggest you do the same? Attempting to expound your opinion with words you lack the propper knowledge of and use, make you comments moot. As for the taco truck being the most innovative thing to happen to Woodbury in a decade, Jester, might I suggest a trip to the library. There, you can read up on the last ten years of Woodbury history...before you state...the taco truck the the most innovative "thing" to happen to Woodbury in the last ten years.

JohnGalt you obviously have nothing better to do than troll these comments. I fully understand the regulations and your comments and I didn't debate what you said. I said maybe its time to bring the regulations in line with the 21st century. When these guidelines were written many of the newer style food service options didn't exist. My bigger point is that no one wants to pay more taxes and every one wants to keep the town pristine yet you have 3 major building spaces completely vacant within a quarter mile. And johnGalt I am very well read and do have some legal training although I am not a lawyer. McDonald's would be hard pressed to use the taco truck as a precedent. Couldn't they have used Corey's and now bilda burger or the several delis in town as past precedent using your interpretation of the regulations.

Mathew, Home sick with the flu thursday to monday, so yes I was trolling for a civil but lively debate (as an avid fisherman, I liked the trolling coment) and was on-line more than usual. I understand and repect you position. I believe 1)] Coreys was a grandfathered, pre zoning regulation, business and coreys resturant area was a seasonal with limited hours of operation. This is why dd was turned down by the zoning board.2) the taco truck an chinese resturant are operating within the mq district thus bound by the mq zoning rules 3) you bring up a valid point, is binda burger fast food or a sitdown dinner/resturant. i dont know. But we now have,confirmed, two fast food entities in mq district....maybe its time to rewrite the rules..since no one was listening or enforcing the old ones. Thus ends my debate on this issue.
