Zoning Commission Rejects QuikTrip Request in Government Hill
The City of San Antonios Zoning Commission voted 8-1 Tuesday against a request for a zoning change in Government Hill that would allow a gas station to be built. The Zoning Commission is made up of citizens appointed by City Council members and the mayor. A parallel request to change the areas land use plan will be heard by the Planning Commission on Wednesday. Councilwoman Jada Andrews-Sullivan (D2), who represents the East Side, told the Rivard Report on Wednesday afternoon that she will not support the zoning change. If the zoning change is approved by City Council, QuikTrip will finalize its purchase of the properties currently owned by Government Hill resident Sara Martinez and the Jackson Cloma Living Trust, which is managed by Frost Bank.therivardreport.com
