The Athens Clarke County Historic Preservation Commission is set to vote Wednesday on whether changes can be made to the outside of the building at 101 College Avenue. The site, located at the corner of College Avenue and Broad Street, will house a new Chick Fil A restaurant.

No governmental approval is required to open the Chick Fil A, but the Historic Preservation Commission does have to approve external changes to the building, because it is located in the downtown historic district.

In 1996 the Olympic games were awarded to Atlanta, but with limited facilities the Atlanta Olympic Committee had included Athens in the plan for hosting several events, including Men and Women's Soccer, Rhythmic Gymnastics and Men and Women's Volleyball.
