ALBION – The Orleans County Planning Board voted on Thursday in support of the site plan for a 9,200-square-foot banquet hall at Mariachi De Oro, a Mexican restaurant at 11417 Maple Ridge Rd.

The new single-story building would be behind the restaurant, north of that site and would include 90 more parking spaces on asphalt. That site is currently vacant greenspace.

The Rosario family opened Mariachi in 2011. The new building will be a wood-framed structure with metal siding.

The new project also includes sidewalks, lighting and landscaping. Trees included in the landscaping plan have been selected by the Maple Ridge Corridor District Tree List by the Village of Medina.

The banquet hall will utilize the existing entrance/exit to the restaurant.

The project includes removing a smaller building that is in poor condition, according to the Orleans County Planning Board. That building has been used for storage.

The banquet hall and parking spaces will be on a 3.75-acre lot with 2.19 acres to be developed.
