Popular gas station chain hoping to build in Macon
MACON, Ga. - A popular gas station chain is hoping to build their first Middle Georgia location in Macon.
A proposal to be heard at a November 13, 2018 Macon-Bibb Planning and Zoning meeting calls for a Quik Trip gas station to be built at the intersection of Sardis Church Road and I-75.
The proposal states development would include a convenience store with fuel sales for both personal vehicles and over the road semi-trucks, and a truck scale. The current site is a combination of vacant land and single family homes. The proposal does not comment on if the homes on the land are occupied.
The plan is to demolish existing structures and build a new 7,179 square-foot floor area, 20 foot high convenience store, with 8 pump islands capable of fueling 16 personal vehicles simultaneously. There will also be an additional 7 stations capable of fueling 7 semi-trucks simultaneously.
The new gas station would employ up to 40 full time workers and would be open 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
According to MBPZ staff, the Commission will hear the proposal at the November 13th meeting, but will not be able to make a decision because of an outstanding required report documenting impact to the area.
Quik Trip has over 750 convenience stores and travel centers across 11 states, including over 135 stores in 20 Georgia counties. This store would be the first in Middle Georgia if approved.
The Tuesday, November 13, 2018 meeting of the Macon-Bibb County Planning & Zoning will be held in the MBPZ Conference Room, Terminal Station 200 Cherry Street, Suite 300 beginning at 1:30 p.m
