- Site Plan Review – Badger Quik Stop. Brunette explained that the applicants recently purchased the western portion of the lot for the purposes of expanding their truck service and retail operations. A review at the staff level raised questions on new and existing signage and screening of the dumpsters, which will be mitigated by chain link fencing with slats. Ms. Brunette explained that this site is unique as it predates the creation of the Industrial Park however, even though the site is not located in the park, the project was built to and far exceeds the covenants. Ms. Brunette explained that the project will provide a really positive aesthetic off the highway. Mr. Jakel asked about plans to remodel the existing store. The applicant explained that the existing space may be leased out and would be remodeled to suit a potential new tenant. The exteriors of both buildings would match. Mr. Foss explained that the building would need to be tied to an alarm system if it is not sprinklered per the Fire code. Ms. Brunette explained that Mr. Neumeier will address storm water management for the project. A motion to approve the site plan in accordance with all municipal codes was made by Grissman, seconded by Reith. All members voted aye. Motion carried.
