Olive Garden construction is expected in two phases, according to plans filed with the city of Baxter.
The 7,600-square-foot restaurant is planned on the northwest corner of Highway 371 and Glory Road Drive by J.C. Penney.
City to charge Tom's Backhoe for delay
The Brainerd City Council voted Tuesday to assess damages of $11,000 against Tom's Backhoe based on the number of working days it took to complete a project beyond the allowable time.
The calendar may say it's the deep of winter, but no one who stepped outside into the warm sunlight and melting snow Thursday is likely to be convinced.
Brainerd hit a record high temperature of 50 degrees just before 3 p.m.
Brainerd received a $425,000 DNR grant paving the way for the Spur Line Trail extension though the southern part of the city.
The trail was a source of contention this past fall when the council split in a vote to submit a grant application.
