South Brunswick, NJ – You’ll have to drive elsewhere if you want some Taco Bell.

The South Brunswick Zoning Board rejected a proposal to build a Taco Bell on Rt. 1 North at New Road. The board shot down the proposal in a 5-2 vote Thursday night, according to TAPInto.

Neighbors of the lot would be negatively affected by a Taco Bell, board members said.

“(The lot) is not big enough (for another type of restaurant),” he said, according to TapInto. “We have to think about what we are going to put there (if not Taco Bell).”

Sorry, but this is wrong.

The South Brunswick Zoning Board should not be in the business of picking winners and losers.

If some one is will to gamble their money putting it there, then who are these bureaucrats to say that they can’t?
