Jackson Township says 'no' to McDonald's



Published: Tue, October 20, 2009 @ 11:34 p.m.

JACKSON — A standing-room-only crowd burst into applause as township trustees voted unanimously against rezoning a 70-acre parcel of land on South Bailey Road for use as a 150,000-square-foot warehouse.

The land, which is zoned R-1 residential, is owned by Mel Cadle and his son Ron Cadle. The pair want the land rezoned I-2 industrial to allow a development company to build a warehouse distribution center. The building would have been leased to Anderson-DuBose Co. of Solon, exclusive distributor for McDonald’s Corp. in this region.

Residents vehemently opposed the rezoning, and voiced their opinions during a public hearing in late September. The township zoning commission voted 4-1 the same night, advising the trustees not to change the zoning for the land.

Trustee Olin Harkleroad said residents’ opposition to the change played a deciding role in the 3-0 vote against the rezoning during Tuesday’s trustee meeting.

There goes another couple hundred jobs out the window. Let's hope Jackson Township doesn't need any school levies passed anytime soon. They said no to the tax money and I sure as hell hope the voters say no to them!
