Mount Pleasant residents are invited to a public hearing Tuesday so village trustees and members of the Plan Commission can listen to their comments and concerns about a proposed $6 million gas station/restaurant/convenience store for the corner of Spring Street and Highway 31.

The Willkomm Company wants to buy 11 properties between Spring and Sunnyside; totaling 4.5 acres between Spring Street and Sunnyside Avenue to make way for a combination gas station, restaurant, convenience store and car wash. It will be similar to their property on Washington Avenue, but instead of a Burger King they will instead open a second Dish location, an independent restaurant they own.

In a recent Letter to the Editor, Jane Studebaker-Harlan asked for the community’s support and that residents who support the project attend the public hearing and tell the village board just that.

The public hearing begins at 6:30 p.m. at Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive. Call (262) 664-7800.
