Project Description

Stream Realty Partners, LP, is proposing to demolish two single-family residential structures located at 2101 and 2109 E. Santa Clara Avenue and construct a new 3,975-square-foot McDonald's restaurant with a drive-thru operation. The Project would request a Conditional Use Permit (CUP), required to allow a drive-thru eating establishment and a second CUP to allow for after-hours operations between 12 AM to 5 AM located within 150 feet of residential properties. In addition, the Project site is currently zoned as A1 (Agricultural), and the Project includes an Amendment Application (i.e., Zone Change) to change the zoning classification to C5 (Arterial Commercial). In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the State CEQ Guidelines, and Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) has been prepared for the Project. The IS/MND serves as a finding that the Project would not have a significant effect on the environment.
