Hubbard council approves zone change for business
The Circle K store on West Liberty Street will expand its store size and add gas pumps and made-to-order food service.
City council passed an ordinance this week to rezone the property behind Circle K that the company purchased from residential to commercial. Mayor John Darko said the enhancement is a $3.5 million investment.
“I am ecstatic for the creation of new jobs with this expansion, the tax revenue,” said Councilwoman Lisha Pompili-Baumiller, D-3rd.
Council also authorized the board of control to advertise for bids for the city’s 2018 street program.
Darko said the city plans to repave portions of Elizabeth Street, Woodland Avenue, Hughes Street, Church Street, West Park Avenue, Forest Hill Drive, Christian Avenue, Saul Drive, Moore Street and Drummond Avenue. An Ohio Public Works Commission grant will cover $74,000, and the city will pay $274,577.
