Grand Rapids leaders are rejecting plans for a Chick-Fil-A restaurant, on the city's northeast side.

The fast-food chain planned to tear down a former Mexican restaurant along East Beltline, just north of Knapp Street, and build a 120 -seat restaurant with a drive through.

According to the Grand Rapids Press, the city's planning commission unanimously voted against the proposal.

The Press reports board members said the Chick-Fil-A would not fit the area's joint development plan, and could be detrimental to the area.

Chick-Fil-A plans to open nearly 20 restaurants in Michigan.
