Goleta Postpones Decision on McDonald’s Drive-Through


The Goleta City Council voted 3-2 to postpone a final decision on the proposed McDonald’s drive-through in the Camino Real Marketplace, after voting to deny an appeal to the drive-through filed by the Goodland Coalition. The vote to delay the decision was made to allow Councilmember Ed Easton ​— ​who said in deliberations that he would be voting against the drive-through, along with colleagues Jim Farr and Paula Perotte ​— ​time to discuss possible changes with the restaurant’s developers so as to find a middle ground that would appease the drive-through’s proponents (who note its convenience) and its opponents (who cite increased traffic and greenhouse-gas emissions). The project will be discussed again at a date to be determined.
