Kwik Star is seeking to establish a greater presence in Webster City, according to Travis Small, the firm’s real estate manager for this part of Iowa.
“We look forward to having a second store in Webster City,” he told the City Council of Webster City Monday night.
The council approved the first reading of an ordinance that would vacate a portion of Third Street right-of-way that is west of Fair Avenue. The proposed store would be on the city’s west end.
Kwik Star already has a store on Fair Meadow Drive near the south entrance of Webster City.
“We’re glad to be here,” Small told the council.
Ariel Bertran, Webster City’s Community Development director, said the city was approached by a developer regarding the proposed development, adding that the vacation of the right of way has been recommended by the city’s Planning & Zoning Commission at its September 11 meeting.
Small did not give a time frame for the project.
The ordinance vacating the right of way must still go through two additional readings and a formal adoption.
The development, according to the council packet, would be located at 505 Fair Ave., Webster City. A formal request for the vacation of Third Street west of Fair Avenue states the development would be located at the northeast corner of Overpass Drive and Fair Avenue.
“The vacation request would allow the developer to design their site as needed with the other parcels that they are acquiring adjacent to the right-of-way,” a council memo in the packet states. “The vacation would also allow for the relocation of associated utilities.”
