City has received plans for ‘Donut Palace’ shop

Kirksville residents may soon be able to dine on freshly made doughnuts just off north Baltimore Street.

The city has received development plans for Donut Palace, a chain whose owner is based in Texas. The proposes shop site is on E. Charles Street near the North Park complex.

The city requested some changes to the plans and are waiting final submissions. Codes and Inspections Director Brad Selby said “if things go well” construction could begin within the next 30-45 days.

Because the location is within an area already zoned for commercial business, the plan does not require approval of the City Council.
