Rezoning request approved

Print Article

BELOIT - A request to rezone a property located in a residential area on Prairie Avenue for a proposed convenience store was officially accepted by the Beloit City Council, with two property owners in the area objecting to the plan.

The property at 3375 Prairie Ave. is currently zoned residential, but applicant Nicole Fischer, of Beloit, hopes to redevelop the corner property to sell tobacco, alcohol, food and lottery tickets, according to the application filed with the city. A drive through component stated in the plan would require an additional conditional use permit.

If the rezoning is approved, Fischer will file a separate application for the convenience store. Wayne and Tammy Sanda, who live across the street from the proposed store, said in a letter objecting to the plan the store would increase traffic in the area on the already-busy street.

"Changing this lot would change the entire dynamic of the neighborhood," they wrote.

Cody Lannert and Amanda Perkins, who live near the proposed site, added the store would "ruin the neighborhood atmosphere," in their letter to the city.

Planning staff said it's too early to tell if a gas station would accompany the proposed store, since no site plans had been submitted. Staff said Fischer had mentioned the convenience store, but that it was "only an idea" in its current form.
