The Bloomington Plan Commission rejected a plan Monday to relocate the Taste of India restaurant to a building on East 3rd Street. The project included constructing a new building that would house the restaurant and five apartments. But nearby residents and property owners voiced concern about a lack of parking in the area, which is on the southern edge of the downtown business district.
The commission considered the proposal at a meeting in August, but it delayed a decision partly because of the lack of parking spots. Member Pat Williams said the plans didn’t change enough in the month between meetings.
The project was rejected by a vote of seven to two. The commission also voted to allow the business to reconsider its proposal, and return in as little as thirty days.
