A plan to build a new Kwik Trip gas station on the city's east side is moving forward.
It was passed by Wausau Planning Commission leaders Tuesday. Officials say it will be located on Kent Street where a former business and two homes stand now.
City leaders say it's a great addition to the Wausau area.
But some residents who declined an on-camera interview say the new business will bring a lot of noise to the neighborhood.
"We have asked Kwik Trip to be cognizant of the fact that if there is issues that the neighbors would bring up to Kwik Trip's attention, Kwik Trip will take care of and attempt to alleviate those issues," said David Nutting, a Wausau City Council member.
"The city of Wausau is real pleased with the development in not only one but two in the same year that's awesome," said Jim Tipple, Mayor of Wausau.
The proposal must now be approved by the full council.
City officials say if that happens, the Kwik Trip on 1500 Grand Avenue will close.
