Quiktrip postpones East Side rezoning request, city says
Planning Commission to take up issue Wednesday
SAN ANTONIO – UPDATE: The city of San Antonio said Quiktrip is postponing its rezoning request after it was denied by the Zoning Commission on Tuesday.
It was set to be reviewed by the Planning Commission on Wednesday, but it’s unclear when that request will be brought back to the table and to the City Council.
The request was to convert two acres of residential property to commercial use for the gas station to be built in the Government Hill neighborhood.
Plans for a Quiktrip on the East Side have hit a bump on the road after some residents in the Government Hill neighborhood expressed their concerns about property values and the potential of being forced from their homes.
On Tuesday, the San Antonio Zoning Commission denied Quiktrip's request to rezone two acres of residential property for commercial use.
But this is not the end. City officials say the Planning Commission will take up the issue on Wednesday.
Both commissions will make recommendations to the full City Council. It will then be up to the council to approve or deny the zoning change.
Currently, people are living on the two acres of the property in question.
Quiktrip has said the property owner and the company are giving each tenant relocation assistance, which includes monetary aid and a real estate agent to help them find a new place.
