Last week, the Milpitas Planning Commission unanimously approved the building of a Chick-Fil-A franchise at 775 Calaveras Blvd. Staff from the city attorney’s offices told the planning commission that they were only to evaluate the operation being proposed, “and not the operators involved.” 


Chick-Fil-A has donated millions to anti-LGBTQIA organizations, and to politicians like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, and others who have used their money to further platforms of hate and discrimination. 


While the Milpitas Planning Commission can conveniently turn a blind eye to this franchise’s history of pushing their political and religious agenda, myself and other citizens of Milpitas will not ignore these actions. Hate has no place in this community, and the Planning Commission has shown a staggering lack of leadership by approving this building with clear complaints from Milpitas residents. 


In order to appeal this decision, one would have to pay a $1,858 fee to voice a complaint. This is an outrageous requirement in an area where rent is frequently $2,000-$3,000 per month. Furthermore, the members of the Planning Commission are appointed, not elected, so the only accountability in this decision must come from the Milpitas City Council.


I am calling for the repeal of Chick-Fil-A’s development permit at 775 Calaveras Blvd. 

Please help me raise this issue before Milpitas Mayor Rich Tran, Vice Mayor Bob Nuñez, Councilmember Karina R. Dominguez, Councilmember Carmen Montano, and Councilmember Anthony Phan.
