The request calls for a 4,597 square foot McDonald’s and a 7,150 square foot retail store at the corner of Lake Hazel Rd. and Five Mile Rd.

The fast-food building would include a “double drive-thru” configuration. It would operate 24-hours per day, according to the application. The retail building would sit further back along Lake Hazel Rd. The application does not list a tenant for the retail store.

The plan calls for onsite parking for 69 cars.

“During the largest shift, 15 employees will be on-site with a total of approximately 40 employees, most being part-time,” Brandon McDouglald with Kimley-Horn & Associates wrote. “The development expects 1,000 customers per day on average.”

Boise Centre is open

A public hearing is set for January 9, 2020 at 6pm at the Ada County Courthouse.

The new restaurant adds to a long-established retail hub that saw growth in recent years. A retail center across the street dates to 1976. It housed a Paul’s Market and Lake Hazel Lanes. It now hosts an Albertsons store, library and a restaurant site.

Around it, a new Idaho State Liquor Store Zamzows, Walgreens, Saint Alphonsus clinic and more sprung up in the last few years, driven by population increases. The area remains part of unincorporated Ada County, though it sits in the City of Boise’s area of impact.
