McDonalds Takes Another Run at a Drive Thru

City Council members tonight unanimously rejected McDonald's request.

Doctor Charlene Hauser works at UC Davis and in lives in Oak Park. She has been a vocal critic of the drive thru.

HAUSER: "Our neighbors in the community and our patients are struggling with being healthy.  And they want to be able to walk and get activity in daily lives that doctors like me are trying to prescribe or them.  When you put a drive thru on this corner, it makes it unsafe for people to walk and bike around the neighborhood."

The proposed restaurant location is at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Stockton Boulevard.  

The Commission approved the restaurant, but denied the drive thru application in April and then denied an appeal.

Efforts to reach the project manager or McDonald's for this story were unsuccessful.
