Plans for a new gas station-convenience store outside of Marysville's Mill Valley subdivision are in the beginning stages, according to city planner Greg DeLong.

On July 13, the Marysville Design Review Board approved an exterior and landscaping plan application for the construction of a 24-hour Turkey Hill gas station, convenience store and car wash.

The application was submitted by J. Carter Bean of Bean Architects in Columbus.

The business is planned to go in at the southwest corner of state Route 31 North and Mill Road.

"We have approved their design," DeLong said, which includes the building itself and its layout. "We have not issued a zoning permit, nor have they been issued building permits. Those things usually will come later."

DeLong said there were minor changes made to the exterior and landscaping plan, such as mixing up the plant varieties.

He said the land is properly zoned (B-1) for the 24-hour business.

"B-1 zoning is what we call service business zoning district," DeLong said. "That (the proposed Turkey Hill) is a permitted use in that zoning district."

According to Denise Clark, who spoke on behalf of Turkey Hill, the company is looking to start construction sometime this fall, pending municipal approvals.

Plans are to open the store approximately 120 days after construction begins, she said.

The convenience store will offer the Turkey Hill's Real Time Caf and an expanded grocery and frozen food section, which will include more than 700 Kroger brand items, such as produce and meat, Clark said. Customers will also be able to earn and redeem Kroger rewards points for gas discounts.
