A Kwik-Trip in Sturgeon Bay came closer to reality on Wednesday evening at the Plan Commission meeting. The Sturgeon Bay Plan Commission approved a conditional use application for a commercial establishment with a drive-thru car wash facility for a future Kwik-Trip located between Egg Harbor Road and Alabama Street.
The seven commissioners, including Chair and Mayor David Ward, expressed concerns about traffic flow onto Alabama Street. Two nearby residents of the proposed property who spoke during the public hearing said they were worried about safety and privacy issues with no sidewalks and lights on for a 24/7 business.
The Plan Commission unanimously approved the motion with an amendment to direct the Aesthetic and Design Review Committee to recommend more tree fences and screening along with a traffic lane to loop vehicles back onto Egg Harbor Road.
Troy Mleziva, a real estate developer for Kwik-Trip, says they pride themselves on being good neighbors.
Mleziva says plans are to have the Kwik-Trip open for business in Sturgeon Bay at some point in 2022.
