Plans are underway to remodel Lamar's Restaurant and Motel, which closed in 2017 and suffered a damaging fire in late February.
Architect Scott Smith, of Williams Street, said Monday, "We plan to reuse it as it has been in the past."
The 0.41-acre property is on MLK Boulevard.
A lot that is southwest of the restaurant/motel is to be used for parking. Mr. Smith said that was its use in the past.
It was long operated by Lamar Patridge, who sold it recently.
