Fayetteville planning commissioners are set to review plans for a new Arvest Bank branch at the southwest corner of College Avenue and Township street on the site of a long vacant car dealership.

Site plans submitted to city planning staff in April call for a 6,000-square-foot, six-lane drive-through bank that includes nearly 40 parking spaces and shared access and entry points with the neighboring Burger King restaurant.

The 1.92-acre lot will be the second in the area to see a major revitalization since Kum & Go opened a new, 10-pump, 5,000-square-foot gas station and convenience store at the southeast corner of the intersection.

Arvest reportedly plans to close a nearby location at 1947 N. College Ave. once the new branch is complete.

Commissioners will review the large-scale development project application during Thursday’s 9 a.m. Subdivision Committee meeting, and then again during the June 11 full Planning Commission meeting.
