Quicklee’s site plan gets OK from Batavia planning committee

OAK STREET: Developers able to move along with convenience store

BATAVIA — Developers of a proposed Quicklee’s convenience store and gas station have the city Planning & Development Committee’s approval to proceed, following approval of a site plan and special use permit.

Quicklee’s, which is based in Livingston County, wants to change the use of the 3,771-square-foot former Bob Evans restaurant, 204 Oak St.

The project involves construction of a four-pump, fuel station island with canopy and underground fuel storage tanks. The convenience store with retail fuel sales will use 2,771 square feet and the drive-thru restaurant will use the remaining 1,000 square feet of space. The committee approved the site plan and permit at its meeting Tuesday night.

Planning & Development Committee Chairman Duane Preston said Wednesday that the committee Tuesday received an updated traffic study that addressed its concerns about the line of vehicles at the drive-thru at the Tim Hortons proposed for the site. The state Department of Transportation recommended that there would be enough room to accommodate the anticipated lineup of vehicles at the drive-thru.
