What Business Should Go at This Location?

It was once the old Mr. Taco building, what should go in this location today?

It's a colorful building that's near the West A Street business and one of the first businesses to welcome travelers to Dixon.

But ever since Mr. Taco moved its kitchen to nearby Plaza Court, the building has been a colorful reminder of what once was.

Now we put the question to the readers of the Patch. What type of business should go at this location?

I agree that Dixon really needs a GREAT hamburger joint!

A few years back we tried do just that. The red tape and expense was horrendous. One of the biggest issues is the parking lot would need to be paved to city standards. I find that interesting being the city has the public Pardi Mud bowl parking lot.

Greg, several other businesses have run from this town screaming about the same issue. To much red tape!

Even if you were willing to spend the money for the parking lot. You still have a sewer issue. The city can't tell if they have the capacity for a couple of restroom. So you are required to hire an engineer to calculate and tell the city if they do or don't. Lets say you agree and spend the money. It then has to go to the planning commission. Once approved by them. It's a special district out there so now you need to get the approval of all the property owners to allow you hookup. Then you will need to pay all or part of the assessments back to when the district was first formed. So you jump thru all these hoops, spend all that money and you are totally approved. Well you only get operate till they redo the intersection and reroute Batavia lol. Which was suppose to have been completed in 2008.
