1280 Teaneck Road is the former gas station, now closed and fenced in. For those of you not following its recent going ons, McDonald's was interested in opening up a restaurant there, which of course requires a drive through. Being one of the top corporations/ franchises of all times (and a damn good place to get a burger) , they instructed their agents and attorney's to first hold a community meeting, held at the Rhodda Center (by the way, do they have to pay for that?)
Of course, the negative comments were running rampant at the meeting (and rightfully so!). So now what.
I feel that a mixed use retail/ condo development (like was was originally proposed 1/2 mile up the block at 1515 Teaneck Rd) is the perfect use for this Gateway District.
Without trying to be sarcastic, I sincerely hope the owners push this plan. The north east Teaneck residents (even though the boards and councils represent all of us at large!!! ) need to figure out what they want.
I understand why they do not want a drive through, but no idea why 1515 was turned down. They seem to want no density development, low taxes and all services. It doesn't take a master in public administration to realize that can't work.
I used the word "north east Teaneck residents" because I have a strong feeling the Teaneck Road business groups want these developments. After all ,this is our gateway block, surrounded by public administration with built in parking.
What will give first!!!
