Breckenridge could have a new Subway restaurant by next fall, after the City of Breckenridge Planning and Zoning Commission met this evening, Oct. 25, and approved a request to replat a piece of property west of Walmart for a building to house the sandwich shop.

Donnie Sechrest filed an application to replat 1.061 acres at 3808 and 3816 W. Walker St., which is currently a vacant lot, for the purpose of building commercial properties there. Sechrest, who owns the Subway franchise in Tuscola, plans to build on the site and hopes to put a Subway franchise there. He would like to have the restaurant opened by August 2023, he said after the meeting.

Breckenridge has been without a Subway location since the 7-Eleven convenience store where the restaurant was located, at the southwest corner of West Walker/U.S. Highway 180 and FM 3099, was closed and torn down earlier this year. The building was removed as part of a project by the Texas Department of Transportation to realign the intersection.

Sechrest’s replat request will need to be approved by the Breckenridge City Commissioners at their regular meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

If approved, the restaurant will face East, and access to the restaurant’s parking lot will be from Walmart’s asphalt entry road on the west side of the Walmart property. TxDOT will not allow an entrance directly from U.S. Highway 180, Sechrest said.

“The staff would make a recommendation that it’s meeting our ordinances, and the engineer has signed off on it, as well,” City Manager Cynthia Northrop said. “So, it’s meeting our requirements.”

After discussing the proposal with Sechrest, the P&Z Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the request.

The following plat and site plan were included in the P&Z meeting’s agenda:
