PLEASANT PRAIRIE — The final site and operational plans for the village’s fifth Kwik Trip location received Plan Commission approval Monday night.
Approved was an 11,033-square-foot facility, which will include 20 fueling positions, a convenience store and a car wash, in the Main Street Market development, west of Old Green Bay Road at 102nd Street.
The newest location, which is expected to be completed some time in 2021, joins four others in the village: 10451 72nd Ave.; 10215 120th Ave.; 8900 76th St.; and 8800 75th St., which has a Kenosha mailing address, but is within the village limits.
“Kwik Trip has been a great community partner,” Pleasant Prairie Community Development Director Jean Werbie-Harris said. “Their locations are well-known for their cleanliness and quality services.
“The new location will be a benefit to the area, providing easy access to fresh groceries and gas.”
The newest location will not run 24 hours a day, but instead will operate from 5 a.m. to midnight. A total of 20 full-time and eight part-time employees will be hired.
In addition, one fuel, one grocery and one additional delivery truck are expected at the facility daily between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m.
According to the staff report issued prior to the meeting, the approval was contingent on a maximum height of 13-feet, 6-inches for the canopy, while another was that all exterior lights must match the site lighting at Froedtert South Medical Office building to the south.
A press release issued after Monday’s meeting states, “the developer carefully evaluated the height of the grocery canopy, the direction of the lighting and signage to ensure the light is directing downward to meet the neighborhood requirements.”
Kwik Trip Real Estate Manager Troy Mleziva said in June, when the conditional use permit and operational plans were approved, that the company is investing $5 million in this project.
