Sixth District County Councilman Ernie Trakas will host a town hall Monday on a QuikTrip proposed at the intersection of Butler Hill and Lemay Ferry roads.

The town hall will be held in person at 6 p.m. Monday, June 28 at The Pavilion at Lemay, 305 Gregg Road.

QuikTrip is proposing a new store at 5040 Lemay Ferry Road, site of two historic buildings: the Kassebaum Building, also known as the Sessions Building, and the Kassebaum House. The Kassebaum Building would be torn down for the new development, while the house, which currently houses a hair salon, would remain.

QuikTrip has not yet submitted its proposal to the county Planning Commission, but could for July.

The town hall follows a traffic study that states the location could generate up to 90 new trips during weekday morning rush hour and 80 new trips during weekday afternoon rush hour, in addition to 220 pass-by trips in both the morning and afternoon weekday peak hours from traffic that already travels on adjacent roadways.

Minimal increases in queues and delays are expected, the study stated.
