December 28, 2019 – West Bend, WI – Preliminary designs have been filed at City Hall in West Bend in connection with a proposed fifth Kwik Trip. Neighbors in the area of Highway 33 and 18th Avenue in West Bend received notification from the City of West Bend regarding an upcoming public hearing.
Preliminary designs show the development would include 20 fuel pump stalls, a car wash and a convenience store. The old Fleet Farm would be razed as part of the project.
See the notice below.
The notification ties to a request for a conditional use permit for 3.2 acres of land at 1637 and 1613 W. Washington Street; that’s the former home of the old Fleet Farm in West Bend and the property to the east, the former Tri-Par building.
The old Fleet Farm closed Nov. 17, 2019 when the new Fleet opened up the street, 3815 W. Washington Street.
The building at 1637 W. Washington Street has been listed for sale and priced at $3,250,000 for the 49,680-square-foot parcel.
The application for the parcel and the conditional use permit was made by Kwik Trip, Inc.
The City of West Bend currently has two Kwik Trips, No. 1 was at Silverbrook and Paradise Drive and No. 2 was at Decorah and Main, with two more on tap as construction is set for a new store on Highway 33 east and on Paradise Drive and River Road.
According to the notice the public hearing will be held January 7, 2020 at 6:01 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, 1115 S. Main Street.
The hearing will be a “request for a conditional use permit to operate a gasoline service station (20 fuel pump stations on 5 pump islands) on approximately 3.2 acres of land at 1637 and 1613 W. Washington Street. The public hearing is being held so that the West Bend Plan Commission may hear those persons who have an interest in the proposed conditional use permit. The City Plan Commission, following the public hearing, will take action on the request for the conditional use permit.”
