San Marcos (Hays County) — An Austin business man received rezoning for a semi-truck and sedan fueling station with convenience store at Tuesday’s meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
The 3.5-acre lot is undeveloped land that is converting from future development (FD) to commercial (CM) zoning.
The developer Najib Wehbe with 2101 Clovis Barker, LLC was seeking heavy commercial (HC) zoning and would have to apply for a conditional use permit (CUP) if he still desires that zoning, according to the commission.
The site is located at the northwest corner of the SH 123 (Guadalupe Street) and Clovis Barker Road intersection in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.
Wehbe’s project is proceeding through regulatory review under the project name FM123 Retail Center.
Austin-based Professional StruCIVIL Engineers, Inc. released a site plan that showed:
- A 9,000 square-foot (150’ x 60’) retail building
- 61.1% impervious cover
- A building height of 28 feet-8 inches
- 44 parking spaces
- 8 semi-truck parking spaces
- 6 foot wide sidewalk along SH 123 and Clovis Barker
- A detention pond
There is also a three-bay fueling station for tractor-trailers and a 12 bay fueling station for passenger vehicles. The passenger vehicle fueling site will be under a 24-foot by 176-foot canopy.
Mirza T Baig with Professional StruCIVIL Engineers, Inc. represented the project to the commission.
Land surveyors All Star, out of Austin, are on board the project.
