San Jose, CA – Students, parents, educators and residents march at the corner of Bollinger and Miller, San Jose to say no to a proposed McDonald Drive-Thru due to safety and health issues.
The San Jose Planning commission denied developers a permit for the Drive-Thru, but the ruling is being appealed to the City Council of San Jose on April 16th.
Nearly two handred local residents attended a recent community meeting on March 28th hosted by District one council memeber Pete Constant, and over 95% of the attendees opposed the Drive-Thru.
McDonald’s states that they have served San Jose residents for many years and intend to continue to be part of the community for many years to come. In the 32 restaurants in San Jose, McDonald’s has created over 4,700 jobs in the city. Additionally, the company returns $0.42 of every dollar spent in our restaurants back to the community through employment and business taxes.
McDonald’s also addresses that they’re going to provide diverse menu choices for their customers and continue to innovate our products offerings year after year.
