Côte Saint-Luc City Council adopted a minor exemption at our May 13, 2013 meeting which paves the way for a new McDonald`s Restaurant, with a drive-through (or drive thru), to be constructed at the Côte Saint-Luc Shopping Centre.
We are proud to note that we successfully requested to McDonald`s that its drive-through signs be bilingual.
Presently, our community has one food court McDonald`s at the Quartier Cavendish Mall. For many years, folks with a Big Mac fix were able to fill that need at a location on Côte Saint-Luc Road and Walkley. Technically, that was situated in N.D.G.
Personally, I do not go to McDonald`s that often. However, when I am between meetings I often lament that the closest drive-throughs to CSL are a Wendy`s on Decarie and a McDonald`son St. Jacques.
The shopping centre came to us many months ago with their wish for a zoning change to allow for a fast food restaurant with a drive-through. I hoped for a Wendy`s-Tim Horton combo or a Harvey`s. We studied the proposal and made several recommendations. I expect the Golden Arches to be warmly welcomed here.
