9 out of 10 people in Tecoma do not want McDonald’s in their town. If McDonald’s have any corporate accountability, they need to take heed of the fast majority of the community that have said both clearly and loudly, NO.
This is an ongoing saga and the people there just don’t want the franchise there….in their town. The population is at 2006, around 2,189… The residents say by having a McDonald’s there is too close to the primary school and other schools and unhealthy for the children…
The town is named after the shrub Tecoma that grew in the area when the need was identified for a railway station for the timber mill that occupied the site where Tecoma Primary School now stands. The Post Office opened on 7 January 1929, closing in 1976.
Tecoma is a small town, nestled between Belgrave and Upwey, adjoiningSherbrooke Forest to the north. It is historically recognised as a foothill township of the Dandenong Ranges, an area of cultural significance and biodiversity
