NEWTON, Kan. — At Tuesday night’s meeting, the Newton City Commission approved the final plat for the QuikTrip development on East First Street between Spencer and I-135.
The Commission also received the developer’s petition for a traffic signal at First and Spencer and approved an engineering agreement with MKEC Engineering for the improvements. The City will pay for 67% of the cost of the signal (estimated total cost of $672,000), and the developer will pay for the rest of the improvements.
The existing special assessments for the water, sewer, drainage and Manchester Avenue street improvements on the previous plat will be re-spread to the new lots.
QuikTrip representatives have said they hope to submit plans for a building permit and break ground in March, with construction taking about a year.
