The Manhattan Urban Area Planning Commission earlier this month green lit a plan for a new Culver’s restaurant.

The restaurant will be constructed in a vacant lot at the northwest corner of the intersection of McCall Road and McCullough Place, directly west of K-State Credit Union and just in front of Menards. The Planning Commission on April 13 unanimously approved a planned unit development amendment of the McCall Landing Commercial PUD.

A timeline for construction hasn’t been shared.

Culver’s was founded in Wisconsin in 1984 and has close to 900 locations in 26 states, mainly in the Midwest. The restaurant is known for its butter burgers, frozen custard and cheese curds among other offerings.

The Manhattan City Commission will consider approval of the Planning Commission’s recommendation at the May 2 legislative meeting.

The commission will also consider three other planning commission recommendations at that meeting, including a rezoning request on Pottawatomie Ave, a municipal facility review for Bluemont Elementary and a new digital sign proposed by the Riley County Health Department.
