Newberg Planning and Building Director Steve Olson said the location is owned by Weber Coastal Bells, a family that owns a chain of Taco Bells in the area. They received permits for both demolition and to rebuild a new building. Olson said they had wanted to start fresh in lieu of making numerous repairs to the site. ‘I can’t think of a project I’ve seen that has done that,’ he said. ‘It’s very unusual.'
