The Effingham City Plan Commission has given its approval to a site plan for a development on the southeast corner of 3rd and Rickelman.

Two buildings are to be developed on the site, which housed the Lincoln Lodge Motel until it was destroyed by fire several years ago.  One building will house a Subway Restaurant; it's not known what will be located in the other building.  The site plan indicates access to the property will come off Rickelman Avenue.

City Building Official Bruce Devall Wednesday said the existing buildings south of the property, including one that currently houses a Subway, will remain for now.
