RaceTrac construction cranks up on 54W

Work is underway on the RaceTrac convenience store on Ga. Highway 54 west between Planterra Way and Line Creek Drive.

The landscape plan for the site was approved by the planning commission Oct. 22, with no less than eight canopy trees required for a 30-foot wide buffer along the highway.

The plan meets or exceeds the city’s requirements and the majority of the remaining plant material will be installed at the perimeter of the parking area, according to a memo prepared by city staff.
City officials are also encouraging RaceTrac to plant an evergreen vine at the base of a retaining wall so it can soften the wall.

Other requirements for the landscape plan include a required guarantee for all plant material to be replaced if any of it dies within two years of the issuance of the certificate of occupancy. The property owner will also be required to maintain all landscaping and meet fine grading criteria.

The commission also approved the exterior building materials and color samples for the building.
