Watertown is closer than ever to getting a third McDonald's restaurant within the city limits.

Justin L. Wood of the city’s Engineering Department, made that public today. He said a representative from Bohler Engineering of Albany submitted plans Tuesday for a zoning change at Chestnut and Washington streets for a proposed 3,900-square-foot McDonald’s in this Jefferson County city.

A house at 111 Chestnut, owned by Susan M. Burker, would have to be demolished and the city would need to change the zoning designation from "Residence A" to "neighborhood business." Final approval then would be needed from the city council for the project to come to fruition.

Records show that property is not the only property involved in the plan. The building at 1200 Washington is owned by Ann M. Fiorentino, who acquired it in 2008 through a city-owned tax sale. That is the site of the Performance Automotive vehicle repair shop, whose owner says he was taken by surprise. at 1200 Washington by surprise.

William J. Eisele told he had not heard about the McDinald's plan, adding, "The landlady who owns the place hadn’t said anything about it.” He and anyone else interested in the project will get a chance to examine the details when te Planning Board meets on May 6.
