New Paltz planners want McDonald’s to consider linking its parking lot with neighbors

Interconnection of parking areas is a planning objective at the county level, as part of an effort to design developments for people rather than their vehicles. For this particular project, a specific objective is to reduce the number of drivers attempting to make a left onto Route 299 from McDonald’s, but presumably it would also incrementally benefit the broader goal of reducing the need to depend on motor vehicles. Neither McDonald’s or adjacent property owners are very interested in the idea.
