Flower Mound Planning & Zoning Commissioners on Monday night voted 5-1 to recommend approval of a Master Plan Amendment (MPA) and Specific Use Permit (SUP) to allow a QuikTrip convenience store and gas station on the southwest corner of FM 2499 and Waketon Road.

The proposed concept plan depicts a one-story a 5,858-square-foot building and a fuel island canopy with 10 pumps on a 1.5 acre lot.

QuikTrip will be the first business in the Hawks Hill development. The approved concept plan for Hawks Hill depicts a total of nine commercial buildings, including the QT.

Despite changes by QuikTrip to tone down the look of the store and  incorporate more architectural elements, commissioners still had concerns.

A sticking point was the signature red band along the roofline of the building, which QuikTrip was not willing to part with. They also asked for a variance from the pitch roof requirement.

QuikTrip agreed to spare a 100-year-old, 30-inch diameter pecan tree on the site.  See a video of the meeting here.

The MPA and SUP are expected to be considered by Town Council on Monday night.

    Why can’t businesses that want access to the wealth of Flower Mound, make even the smallest changes to accommodate our Town’s character? Will no one stop at Quick Trip if the have to make minor modifications to their sign? I am certain our Town Council will rubber stamp another exception to our Town codes and ordinances, just as P&Z has done once again.

      I wish I hadn’t moved here. I thought this was a nice quiet quaint town.
