(Greendale, Ind.) – Greendale residents soon won’t have to run from the Indiana-Ohio border in order to get their taco fix.

There’s a new restaurant coming to town. Taco Bell has recently broken ground on a new location next to McDonald’s on the 600 block of U.S. 50-Eads Parkway.

Greendale Redevelopment Director Al Abdon said he understands that Taco Bell will continue to operate its existing restaurant further down U.S. 50 in Aurora, too.

Abdon was not sure on a timeline for the opening of the new fast food joint.

Meanwhile, a vacant restaurant property in Aurora has sold. The old White Castle on U.S. 50-Green Boulevard has been closed for nearly two years. According to county tax records, the property was sold July 2 to Blaze Properties, LLC for $480,000.

Why not mix things up? Put in a good steak house or a Red lobster. Anything different. I wish Greendale wanted to be a little different instead of a re-run.

Yes, I agree to the need for real jobs to be brought into Dearborn County, but NOT via tearing up valuable open space river frontage that is home to many species of birds and animals and the only true source close to us as a quiet peaceful chunk of land for human enjoyment. By this I am referring to the "Port Authority" fiasco AGAIN. After 30 years here we go again! Save our wild and open spaces people of Dearborn County. VETO more industrial pollution and destruction of habitat. Build up US 50/ Eads Parkway with whatever, BUT LEAVE THE OXBOW ALONE!

Just another fast fold joint employing min. wage employees! Why not lure some real jobs to Dearborn County? I see another Colerain Ave. in the making on US 50.  Yo Quero TacoBell..

It's not Greendale or Lawrenceburg's fault. Those bigger restaurant chans have "formulas" to decide if a location would be profitable. It's decided by the number rooftops within a number of square miles of the location. And unfortunately we don't fit into their perameters. They don't understand / care about us being a hub for all the surrounding communities or having the pull of a casino. Trust me all the leaders of all the local towns have beat this horse to death over and over and there's just nothing anyone can do about it. Everyone has tried and the restaurants say no.
