CEDAR LAKE | The Plan Commission on Tuesday agreed to allow a second entrance to Harry O’s restaurant.

The Cedar Lake commission approved the restaurant's site plan with contingencies, in particular a restricted covenant that ensures an access easement will remain in place even if the property changes hands.

Harry O’s owner James Xerogiannis, of St John, owns several lots west of the restaurant at 13226 Wicker Ave. He is seeking to build a driveway across those lots that will link the restaurant to 133rd Avenue, Xerogiannis’ surveyor, Douglas Hofmeier, said. Currently, Harry O’s has just one entrance, off Wicker Avenue.

Plan Commission members agreed Harry O’s needs a second entrance.

“If you’re there after church and you try to pull out on (U.S.) 41, you’re taking your life into your hands,” member John Foreman said.

However, officials were concerned that if Xerogiannis sells the property to the west, the entrance easement would be closed. The restricted covenant ensures that the easement will remain in place even if the property changes hands.
