Circle K: Mitman awaits arrival of new store

Two people from Mitman Neighborhood attended the zoning hearing on May 5 for the rezoning of the small parcel on the east side of the property [see hatched mark areas on the map]. We thought this rezoning was to allow delivery trucks to park and unload mercandise but have discovered there is an ‘easement’ between the 4 properties to be purchased, or already purchased, by Circle K and Takamatsu. If you will notice there are 4 exits from both properties onto First Street which means there will be access to First Street via using the easement and going through Takamatsu property. There will be another hearing at the June 21 Mayor and Council and details will be posted when received. No letters of protest were received from Mitman neighbors that are within the ‘protest area’. Any letters that don’t include name and address are not recognized.

You might be able to make a difference. Write a letter by April 21 and send to City of Tucson Planning & Development Services Department, 201 N. Stone Avenue, P.O. Box 27210, Tucson, AZ  85726-7210 and/or email:         Your requests might be accommodated. Do you want to see a high wall? a shorter wall with wrought iron? a low wall with vegetation? sufficient lighting at the back of the store? camer

as? The Planning and Development Department will take into consideration requests – we may not get it but it’s worth the effort. These letters must be in at least 2 weeks before the zoning hearing which is scheduled for May 5.This new Circle K  to be built on the southeast corner of  Craycroft and Speedway will be open 24 hours/7 days a week  with 16 fueling stations and a full liquor license.

From the architect renderings it looks like it will be about the size of the relatively new QT on Speedway near Rosemont. The zoning hearing is tentatively scheduled for May 5 to get zoning changed on one small parcel of land. See the area with hatch marks and any further info in the full post. Four neighborhoods were invited to participate in a discussion with Circle K representatives at Ward VI council office on November 2, 2010 and January 27, 2011. The car lot, Sanchez Restaurant, and Tucson Seat Cover on the southeast corner of Speedway and Craycroft  will be razed. Access will be from both of those streets.

We would love to hear what you think about this new Circle K in our neighborhood. Please post your comments below. They will be reviewed before posting to prevent spam and off topic comments. For comments/requests to Planning & Development you will need to send a letter directly to them.
