SP-2003-06 Review the Revised Site Plan for the Kwik Shop located at 114 W. US-54. Sheila Hackler of Baughman Company submitted color elevations to the committee members. She said she is asking for approval of the plan with the condition she will submit an updated lighting plan to Les to include lighting on the north which will light the area between the Kwik Shop building and the Goodwill Store.

 

Sheila Hackler said the Kwik Shop corporate logo has changed and they have changed the building site to face Andover Road instead of US-54. She said this should avoid some of the problems with the highway expansion.

 

Sheila Hackler said the building materials have changed from a pre-fab building to a split-face block building. She said on page C1.2 which shows the trash dumpster facing west towards the car wash.

 

David Martine asked for an explanation of the color scheme. Sheila Hackler said the split-face block will be light grey; the new corporate logo will be light grey with a black stripe.

 

Doug Allison asked if the colors on the building would be metal. Sheila Hackler said only the striping would be metal.

 

Ed Soper, representative from Kwik Shop said only the south side of the store would be bland with no striping and that all exposed block will be grey 8”x 16” split-faced concrete material.

 

David Martine asked where the HVAC system would be. Ed Soper said it would be on the roof and the parapet on the 2 sides would cover it.

 

There Andover Road driveway was narrowed to 40 ft. to meet the City Driveway Standards.

 

Phil Meyer from Baughman Company said that in addition to the changes Sheila listed, the car wash will be on the west side of the store. The pumps were moved to the east side.  This will free the site up for the future right-of-way at the intersection, and to improve traffic circulation on the lot.

 

Les Mangus said this change in color scheme is more subdued and blends in better with the Lubbers building. David Beaver thought the colors were still too bold and would rather the colors carry on the similar theme of the River project. David Beaver asked the members of the committee if they had any objections to the color choices submitted tonight. David Martine said the grey split-faced block would tie in better with the Lubbers building.

 

David Martine asked who would build the road that connects Lubbers to the Kwik Shop. Ed Soper said the land owner puts it in. Dr. AJ Reed, property owner said the Lubbers building was designed to blend in with the Kwik Shop store.

 

Doug Allison asked if the elevation of the car wash on page A3.1 shows it facing east. Phil Meyer said the front elevation faces east.

 

David Martine asked if there would be any glass on the Kellogg frontage side of the store. Phil Meyer said the floor plan of the store would not allow for glass there.

 

Doug Allison asked about the beginning plant sizes for the south side of the building. David Martine said the landscaping plan shows they will be 6’ – 7’.

 

Doug Allison asked if staff accepted the grading plan. Les Mangus said the only problem he saw with the plans was the lighting issue along the north access driveway which will be resolved.

 

David Martine asked when construction would start. Ed Soper said as soon as building permits are submitted, approved and weather permitting.

 

David Beaver asked for information about the future drive through window. Ed Soper said there will not be one on this site.

 

David Martine asked if the trash dumpsters would be screened with wood fence. Phil Meyer said it is a block enclosure which is open to the west.

 

David Martine asked what the north side of the store would look like.  Phil Meyer said it will face the Goodwill store and there will not be any landscaping on that side.

 

There was further discussion about the access roads on this corner. Les Mangus said there will be joint access for the Goodwill, Kwik Shop, Lubbers and hotel and there would be right-in right-out driveways onto Andover Road and US-54.  

 

David Martine asked if the color bands would wrap around the building on the north side. Ed Soper said they would not. David Martine was concerned about the traffic view of the back of the building on US-54. Phil Meyer said there would be access lighting on the north side that should make the north elevation more attractive.

 

David Beaver asked about the building setback. Phil Meyer said it is 35’ off of Andover Road and 115’ from Kellogg which should allow for future expansion on Kellogg. Les Mangus said it is 200’ from the center of the median of US-54.

 

David Martine asked about the height of the berm. Sheila Hackler said it will be approximately 4’ tall which would serve as parking lot screening.

 

David Martine made a motion to approve the revised plans for Kwik Shop with the condition that staff approves the final lighting plan. Shawn King seconded the motion. Motion carried 4/0.

SP-2004-14 Review the Signage Plan for the Children’s Discovery Center at 836 N. Andover Rd.

 

Byron West of TriMark Signworks in Wichita introduced Annette Heindricks from Children’s Discovery Center . Byron West said this will be a 3’ x 6’ lighted sign on the front elevation of the building. He said this sign would update the logo and add lighting to it. The sign will be placed just south of the canopy on the front of the building.

 

Doug Allison asked if the color rendering submitted is accurate. Byron West said it is.

 

David Martine made a motion to approve the sign for the Children’s Discovery Center as presented. Shawn King seconded the motion. Motion carried 4/0.
