I have had many rational conversations with friends and family about McDonalds, some are for and some are against.
With these discussions it has been easy to understand everyone's point of view.
I too have a concern about the traffic at the roundabout and think Council needs to see how this can be addressed.
With or without McDonalds, this area can get congested at certain times in the day.
But the employment McDonalds would give the area is probably the best opportunity that teens have had in Umina for some time and this needs to be encouraged.
For the people against McDonalds, what can you do to create employment for teens and people with disabilities in the area?
McDonalds provides employment for both, and I can guarantee there will be a big line up for all jobs.
The people commenting on the high fat food of McDonalds must not have stepped into a McDonalds restaurant for some time.
There are now plenty of healthy choices as well as the regular menu, so the talk of all the food being high in fat is just not true.
With the cafes in West St, I really don't see how it would affect them as they're a different market.
People who love the cosy atmosphere and the unique food of a cafe will not be going to McDonalds anyway.
