OCONOMOWOC — A convenience store that also sells gasoline has been proposed for the northeast corner of East Wisconsin Avenue and Lapham Street in Oconomowoc. The Plan Commission will hold a public hearing and then discuss the project during its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Based in Iowa, Casey’s General Stores sell prepared foods and is known for its pizza, according to its website. It also sells subs and wraps, burgers and sandwiches, appetizers, breakfast, bakery and sweets, as well as salads and beverages.

The proposed hours of operation for the Oconomowoc location are 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.; however, they could be extended to be 24 hours per day or 5 a.m. to midnight after opening. The business is also anticipated to employ between 20 and 30 people, 10 to 15 of which will be full time.

During its meeting Wednesday, the Plan Commission will discuss rezoning for the project and a conditional use permit for gas sales. City Planner and Zoning Administrator Jason Gallo is recommending approval of the project.

The building is slated to be 4,517 square feet on 1.26 acres.

Other Wisconsin locations for Casey’s General Store are in Waterford, Elkhorn, Milton, Beaver Dam and Janesville.

The Plan Commission will meet in the City Hall Council Chambers, 174 E. Wisconsin Ave.
