The City of Cleveland Board of Zoning Appeals has voted down an appeal that would allow for the building of a drive-thru McDonald's in Ohio City at the six-point intersection of Lorain Avenue and Fulton Road.
A Cleveland Board of Zoning Appeals hearing was held Tuesday morning at Cleveland City Hall for concerned parties to voice their opinion.
Cleveland City Councilman Joe Cimperman stands with the Ohio City residents and business owners that oppose the building of the McDonald's. Community members have argued that the building of the drive-thru McDonald's would have negative impact on traffic, and pose a threat to children, pedestrians and area residents who live near the intersection.
The appeal by McDonald's was of a ruling last November by the Cleveland Planning Commission that rejected the proposal to construct the McDonald's at the Lorain Avenue and Fulton Road location.
