McDonald’s Seeks Lake Cook Road Access

Village Board gives nod to first step in restaurant’s remodeling process.

A remodeling plan by on Waukegan Road allowing customers to go directly from the eatery to Lake Cook Road took a step forward at Monday’s regularly scheduled meeting of the .

In other action, the Board gave preliminary approval to allow Essence Pilates to operate at the American Legion Hall, allowed a change to the medical building which will occupy former George’s What’s Cooking location and approved a Class K liquor license for Cre8 Workshop.

By a 6-0 vote, the Board approved unanimous reports from the Zoning Board of Appeals and Plan Commission to grant the necessary approvals to McDonald’s to allow the company to remodel its long time Deerfield restaurant.

There will be less parking spaces but an improved traffic flow allowing two drive through lanes and two menu boards for those customers. The greatest amount of discussion was about the easement from the property owner immediately south of the restaurant to allow direct access to Lake Cook Road.

“Most developers can’t get approval to cross another property and you have done it ahead of time,” said. “My compliments to you.” McDonald representative Hal Frank said there was already a signed easement agreement.

Patch will have more detailed stories on these issues and other Village Board business later this week.

First glance, the added exit makeS sense. It could clear traffic at Waukegan. Perhaps a right turn only on to Lake Cook road would also make sense.
