Goleta Activists Appeal McDonald’s Drive-Through


The Goodland Coalition, a group of Goleta activists concerned about development, filed an appeal on 10/24 of the Planning Commission’s recent 3-2 approval of a drive-through for the McDonald’s in the Camino Real Marketplace. The group is worried about how the drive-through — which restaurant owner David Peterson has been vying for since 1997 — will affect traffic and related greenhouse-gas emissions. “We are surprised,” said project manager Troy White of the appeal. “This is a project that has no new impacts while providing significant community benefits. It improves traffic within the center, provides new sidewalks/crosswalks, and does not change the level of service on local streets. It will provide working families, busy workers, and the disabled a convenient means to get a meal while shopping at the center or driving by.” The appeal will go before the City Council at a date to be determined.
