On a 4-1 vote, the board reversed the decision of the county planning commission, which voted 4-1 to approve the restaurant but deny the drive-through. Supervisors Bruce Gibson, who represents Los Osos and is up for reelection in June, cast the lone dissenting vote.
Gibson said he supported McDonald’s opening in Los Osos, but not with a drive-through because it does not support a pedestrian friendly environment.
Most of the approximately 100 people who attended opposed the McDonald’s and/or its drive-through.
The supervisors conditionally approved the Los Osos McDonald’s such that it can only operate from 5 a.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday. Friday through Sunday, the burger franchise can remain open until 1 a.m.
The restaurant will seat 50 customers. It will fill a vacant site in a shopping center on Los Osos Valley Road.
