The Queen Creek Town Council approved conditional permits for the Circle K at Riggs and Rittenhouse roads during its Wednesday, Sept. 15, meeting.
The developer of the property, Jodi Hammill of Land Development Consultants LLC, had asked the council to approve a conditional-use permit and a site plan.
The conditional-use permit is for fuel sales. The site plan approval is for approximately 2.04 acres of land at the northwest corner of Riggs and Rittenhouse roads.
The item was on the council public hearing consent agenda, which was passed without comment.
Despite some residents disapproving of the location of the convenience store, no one showed up to the meeting to speak against the matter. Emails and virtual comments also were not made by the public.
Some Queen Creek residents fear that the Circle K will cause traffic problems in an already busy area of town.
