The owners of Fuel City gas station will make one more final effort to build their newest location in Cedar Hill. Earlier this month the members of the city’s planning and zoning committee voted against their favor, after several residents petitioned against the proposal.
On Tuesday, the leaders of the gas station will appeal the initial vote and present their proposal in front of Cedar Hill City Council at the 6 p.m. meeting. The proposed location is off U.S. Highway 67 Frontage Road and N. Joe Wilson Road. If approved, the gas station would not cater to 18-wheelers, but the car wash, the tacos, and the 12-animal zoo would stay. Neighbors have expressed concern about the nightlife atmosphere, and high traffic Fuel City is typically known for.
If approved, Fuel City agreed to close the car wash down by 8 p.m. but the gas station would remain open 24-hours. To ensure safety, they plan on having security from midnight to 5 a.m.
