Circle K wants four more gasoline pumps (Photo/Bill DiPaolo)
A final vote to demolish the Circle K gasoline convenience/filling station on the south side of Indiantown Road just west of Alternate A1A and build a bigger one with more gasoline pumps is scheduled for final vote at today’s 7 p.m. town council meeting.
The plan calls for increasing the number of pumps from 12 to 16. The 1,000-square-foot building would be replaced by a new one that would be 4,400 square feet.
The owners of the property, Circle K Stores Inc., would pay the town $75,000 for abandonment of a 25-foot-by-300-foot alleyway within the site. The westernmost entry driveway to the Circle K on Indiantown Road would be eliminated.
A generator to run store operations for a minimum of 72 hours after a storm is planned. So is a 50- kilowatt electric vehicle-charging station.
About 41,000 vehicles travel daily on Indiantown Road between Alternate A1A and Military Trail, according to county records.
