A Chipotle Mexican Grill is scheduled for construction near the intersection of William Penn Highway and Stroschein Road.

Council unanimously approved the project at its meeting Tuesday night.

The Monroeville Planning Commission approved site plans in May with conditions, said Mark Ciufo, Monroeville zoning and code-enforcement officer.

A 6-foot privacy fence and natural vegetation will shield residents on Kenmar Drive from the back of the restaurant, Ciufo said.

Contamination was discovered about 10 years ago on the same lot, where Eastmont Cleaners formerly was located.

The building since was demolished and the cleanup process recently was approved by the state Department of Environmental Protection, said Monroeville Director of Engineering Paul Hugus.
