Some residents in the Logan neighborhood aren't happy with a new McDonald's franchise being built just north of the Hamilton - Mission intersection that will be a drive-thru only restaurant.
Residents aren't opposed to McDonalds, just the chain's design concept for the new franchise, so now the Logan Neighborhood Council wants the chain to alter their construction plans for the restaurant, slated to open in June.
"It would be hugely disappointing if they didn't work with us to redesign it," Karen Byrd with the Logan Neighborhood Council said.
The chief concern is that the franchise is not pedestrian friendly. Byrd said the plan doesn't work well with the neighborhood's vision.
"There is a walk up window on the back side, pedestrians would have to walk up two driveways to reach a pedestrian walk-up window," Byrd explained.
Byrd said the current plan will also add more traffic to residential streets.
Spokane City Councilmember Amber Waldref also expressed concerns about the design, asking the fast food chain to change their franchise design plans.
