McDonald’s: Out with the old, in with the new

Following the completion of the Sixth Street construction project, there is a chance that McDonald’s, currently located at 1605 Sixth St., will be rebuilt.

“Right now, I don’t really have any firm news,” said owner Mike Hartshorn. “We are looking at possibly rebuilding, and I say possibly because we’re still dealing with the city on a few issues.”

One of those issues is the side-access driveways. The city would like to close them, allowing just one central access route to the McDonald’s parking lot.

Until that situation is sorted out, there won’t be any progression in rebuilding the current building.

Hartshorn and others will attend the City Planning Commission zoning meeting on May 2 at 7 p.m. in City Hall to discuss possible reconstruction.
