Last month, City of Burlington planners told representatives of Casey’s General Store to go back to the drawing board and return with an upgraded design for their convenience store and gas station that better matched other buildings in the area.

Casey’s officials did just that and were rewarded with a recommendation to approve their request to build the facility at the corner of Dodge and Adams streets in downtown Burlington.

However, that doesn’t mean everyone was happy with proposal. During a public hearing on the plan, two elected officials expressed concerns about flooding and proximity to the railroad at the site, and the owner of another gas station/convenience store said the added competition may doom his business.

In-depth coverage of Tuesday’s Plan Commission meeting is one of the many local stories readers will find in this week’s edition of the Burlington Standard Press.
