As a resident of Los Osos, Iam against having a drive-through McDonald’s come to town. Money spent at McDonald’s is money not spent at local restaurants. The drivethrough is poorly planned and will lead to unnecessary congestion and pollution in the already busy area in front of Miner’s. The lighting and signage are far too bold and would be like having a giant billboard at eye level. It would become the centerpiece of our town.
Los Osos is in the midst of creating a community plan, where topics such as drive-throughs, signage and the town’s character are being put into a document that will say: This is what our town is and wants to be in the future. I hope our supervisors see the wisdom of letting Los Osos finish the community plan before allowing any drive-through restaurants with gaudy lighting in town.
I am against McDonald’s coming to Los Osos, especially when the community plan has not been completed.
