Logan Neighborhood foes to McDonald’s holding press conference this morning

The heated debate in the north Spokane Logan Neighborhood will continue in a public way today, around 11:30 a.m.

Residents in that area oppose plans by the McDonald's Corp. to build a drive-through-only restaurant at the corner of Hamilton and Augusta. They say traffic in that area is already heavy and a drive-through will only aggravate the situation.

Today, opponents of the drive-through are hosting a public event, a conference with State Sen. Andy Billig and Spokane Councilwoman Amber Waldref.

They'll be doing the conference at the McDonald's site, we were told by one of the neighborhood organizers.

The short takeaway:  the city didn't oppose this proposal at the planning department level. Unless the opponents can convince McDonald's to revise its design, it's not likely the city government is going to have any impact on it.

Work is already under way at the site. The restaurant is expected to open this summer.
