(Sub.)
Rezoning an area of approximately 1.5 acres generally located at the southwest corner of Westport Road and Holly Street, extending to the west side of Mercier Street, from District B3-2 to District MPD, and approving a development plan that allows for gasoline and fuel sales. (14730-MPD).


PLANNING, ZONING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE recommends "WITHOUT RECOMMENDATION AS A SUBSTITUTE"
Olofu Agbaji, City Planning and Development, gave the staff report on the Ordinance. The applicant is requesting approval to rezone the1.5 acre tract of land from District B3-2 (Community Business dash 2) to District MPD (Master Planned Development), and approval of a development plan that allows for gasoline and fuel sales. Quick Trip has acquired the vacant Berbiglia building and the duplex on Holly Street and would like to consolidate the parcels and demolish the existing store to allow for the construction of a generation 3 store. The applicant has also filed a petition to vacate Mercier Street (Case No. 1737-V) at the intersection of Westport Road. The proposed store will be about 6,000 square foot with 52 parking spaces, including 3 ADA accessible parking spaces. The gas station/ convenience store is proposed with 7 islands (14 pumps). The proposed canopy is approximately 120’ x 60’ with the northwest corner beveled off to allow for through traffic. Access to the site is proposed via two driveways on Westport Road and a third driveway on Holly Street. It should be noted that along Westport Road there are a number of curb cuts that do not line up. The street grid is also offset, therefore attempting to align driveways is difficult. If an opportunity presents itself, it should be attempted, but is not required. The applicant is also proposing to petition to have Holly Street be a two way street from Westport Road to the Quik Trip driveway. This will require review and approval by the Public Works Department and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee of the City Council.
