The Columbus City Council has cleared the way for construction of a Casey’s General Store at State Street and Gladstone Avenue.
Council members voted 6-0 to tweak the site’s zoning during a meeting Tuesday in what was the final approval of the plan.
The council’s first approval came two weeks earlier.
Casey’s Marketing Co., owners of the store chain, plans to build a gas station and convenience store at the former Kennedy Mobile Home Park.
The property owners removed the last of the mobile homes in the nearly 60-year-old park last summer.
Also on Tuesday, the council:
Quality Machine and Tool Works plans to install $952,000 worth of new equipment at its plant, which produces parts for the auto industry.
That equipment will consist of four vertical turning lathes, a vertical machining center, a crane and a hoist system, according to the company’s application with the city.
The council rezoned Monarch Crossing to multifamily residential and gave up the city’s right-of-way for an existing access road.
When the apartments were built, owners of a single-family home were not interested in selling, so the apartment complex was built up around the lone house.
The apartment complex owners since have purchased the home and plan to build a three-story expansion of the existing apartments.
