McDonald’s USA, LLC, requested permission from the Beavercreek City Council to construct a 4,456 square foot new location on Indian Ripple Rd. and County Line Rd. in the Greene Crossings Shopping Center near the Greene Towne Center, formally the site of the China House Restaurant.
The popular chain of fast-food serving special sauced hamburgers is seeking to expand in the Beavercreek area. The plans for a retro design was submitted to the Planning Commission and sent to the City Council for approval. The Planning Commission requested approval with 20 conditions including the specifications on the materials to be used, the colors allowed and landscaping restrictions and requirements. The main entrance to the new location of McDonald’s is to be on the Indian Ripple Road side only if the original design stays the same as what is being proposed. The area to be used as the entrance on County Line Road is t to be repaired and resurfaced prior to the opening of the restaurant as part of the application and is the responsibility of McDonald’s.
The McDonald’s corporation presented 23 pages of drawings, sketches and plans for the new location at the time of the application. The Beavercreek Planning Commission held a public hearing in February to get the public’s input before deciding to recommend the initial site plans to city council.
On March 9, the Beavercreek City Council scheduled a public hearing to hear opinions on McDonald’s expansion and was placed on the night’s agenda. But, when the time came for the staff presentation of the recommendations, staff informed the council that McDonald’s had withdrawn their application, stating funding issues.
So, for now, plans for the expansion of a new McDonald’s fast-food location are on the back burner.
