Kum & Go seeks city nod for 21st & Broadway

       Kum & Go has submitted two requests to City Land Use Review that would allow construction of a store at the northeast corner of 21st and Broadway streets.
       As reported in the June 27 Westside Pioneer, the privately owned Iowa-based company has had a contract for a few months with Pikes Peak National Bank on its two lots at that corner, totalling 1.77 acres. The site used to be a remote site for the bank, but is currently unused.
       One request is for approval of a development plan that shows a nearly 5,000-square-foot convenience store and 10 gas pumps, with access from 21st as well as Broadway.
       The other request is for a “waiver of replat” to let the two lots be combined for zoning purposes.
       A letter to the city from Kum & Go site development manager Ryan Halder states that the building will have a brick façade “with arched entry features, 26 parking spaces and “substantial landscaping.” Overall, Halder writes that the store will be “compatible with the surrounding commercial uses.”
       One of those uses is a 7-Eleven convenience store and gas station a block away, at 21st and Bott Avenue.
       Both the development plan and waiver can be approved administratively, according to the city.
