Hartford Plan Commission to review Casey’s General Store proposal tonight | By Samantha Sali

 

Jan. 8, 2018 – Hartford, WI – The Hartford Plan Commission will meet tonight, Monday, Jan. 8, to review the concept plan for the development of a Casey’s General Store on Highway 60 near Walmart.

The concept plan has been submitted by the civil engineer and land surveyor company, Arc Design.

The gas station/convenience store would be located on the northwest corner of Liberty Avenue and State Trunk Highway 60 next to the commercial strip center.

The proposed plan includes 10 fuel-pump stations, fuel canopy, and a convenience store. Two driveways have also been proposed; one to access Liberty Avenue as a right-turn entrance and the second would connect to the strip center.

The Plan Commission will also review a petition to annex two parcels on the northwest corner of Liberty Avenue and Highway 60 from the Town of Hartford into the  city to further facilitate development of a Casey’s General Store.

If the plan is approved, formal building design, engineering, landscaping, and lighting plans will be submitted to the Plan Commission.

“If it gets through preliminary approvals, they would hope to build this summer,” Hartford City Administrator Steve Volkert said. “There is one snag to the plans that might table this issue tonight but we hope that’s not the case.  We’ll see what happens.”

While Volkhert did not specifically say what the snag was, there is a clear problem in the proposed plan – an entrance to Casey’s would be from the parking lot of the commercial strip mall.

In addition to reviewing Casey’s General Store, the meeting will also be reviewing proposed signage for the new Cobblestone Hotel & Suites.

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. in the Common Council Chambers in the lower level of City Hall (109 N. Main Street). The meeting is open to the public.

On a side note: According to Casey’s General Store web page the business started “In 1959, Founder Don Lamberti leased a store from his father on East 14th and Broadway in Des Moines, Iowa. After nine years of operating this old country store, which he remodeled into a convenience store, Don’s gas supplier and friend, Kurvin C. Fish, suggested Don buy the Square Deal Oil Company. Don followed his advice and purchased the service station with a three-bay garage in Boone, Iowa. Using the knowledge from his store in Des Moines, Don converted the gas station into a convenience store. The Boone store was named “Casey’s.”

Currently Casey’s General Store has over 2,000 locations. The company has made a name for itself with “clean stores and friendly employees who pride themselves in customer service.”

The closest Casey’s General Store is in Beaver Dam. Matter of fact, it looks like the ONLY Casey’s store in Wisconsin is in neighboring Dodge County. The store is open 24 hours; it has donuts, pizza and delivery.
