WAUKESHA — The southwest corner of Golf Road and
Grandview Boulevard could soon be home to a new Kwik
Trip convenience store, as the Plan Commission gave the
project preliminary approval Wednesday night.
However, there are some aesthetic issues to work out
between developers and city staff before the commission
will give its final blessing to the 7,100-square-foot
Planner Doug Koehler said he wants to see the gas pumps
“dressed up” with brick features and possibly a
standing-seam roof to match the convenience store since
the station will be in an area with such high visibility
off Interstate 94.
Mayor Shawn Reilly concurred, saying he believes the
area might be the highest traffic- count spot in the
Koehler said the city has had great luck with other Kwik
Trip stores in the past, and he expects this one will be
up to the same high standard.
Commissioner Kevin Larson said he was impressed with
Kwik Trip’s efforts to offer a “one-stop shop,” and he
believes the new store will be a high-volume center that
brings lots of travelers, including semi-truck drivers,
The commission granted unanimous preliminary approval to
the store’s site plan, architectural review and
conditional use permit, with the condition that staff
and developers work to address the aesthetic issues
before the project comes back for final approval.
