QuikTrip convenience store in Gardner as part of the consent agenda on Tuesday night.

The store would be built just between the Casey’s General Store and Walgreens Store on East Main Street. As part of the project, the store owners would construct a westbound right turn lane into their entrance off Main Street, or U.S. 56 Highway, and an east bound left hand turn lane into the Moonlight Plaza entrance on the east side of the site.

City staff did not formally present plans for the 20-pump gas station and convenience store, but plans are available online as part of the planning commission Feb. 28 agenda packet at www.gardnerkansas.gov/pc_agenda_022812/.

Before construction begins, QuikTrip must submit a final plat plan for approval. Amy Kynard, city planner, said she does not know when that might occur. However, the preliminary plat approval is good for up to three years.
