SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Residents in a neighborhood near the UC Davis Medical Center are organizing opposition against a proposed fast food restaurant on a nearby busy roadway.
The Oak Park Neighborhood Association said at least 1,500 residents have already signed a petition against a local developer’s plan to built a McDonalds on a one-acre lot off Stockton Boulevard, citing concerns over noise, light, smell and increased traffic in the area.
Neighbors also noted the irony of erecting a fast-food restaurant within view of a childhood obesity clinic across the street.
A Sacramento city staff report did not support the proposed use of the site and said the lot would be better used for a wider range of services, restaurants, retail and office space.
Opponents say they plan to protest the restaurant when the planning commission takes up the issues next week.
