Kwik Trip officials spoke before the Saukville Board of Zoning Appeals on Thursday night in hopes of reversing a decision to deny a permit that would have allowed them to build on the location near a wetland.
Kwik Trip officials were unable to convince the Saukville Board of Zoning Appeals that another gas station near a wetland shouldn't be cause for environmental concern, causing the future of the land the company already owns to continue to linger in limbo. The Board of Zoning Appeals voted 3-1 to deny a modification to the ordinance that is preventing the gas station from being built because the location is less than 600 feet from a wetland.
