The Conway Historic District Commission approved two projects on Monday night, hearing no objections from the public.

Phil and Diana Kirkland said Central Station will be a convenience store combined with the existing service station in the heart of Downtown at Locust and Oak streets.

The Commissioners approved a 300 square-foot addition to the Citgo station, providing two handicapped-accessible restrooms and an office.

Construction will be of concrete block, matching the existing structure.

The service bays at the Station will become dining-in areas for gathering for coffee and lunch.

The filling station will have full service, with attendants checking tires, oil and cleaning windshields.

“We’ll take care of you,” Diane Kirkland said.

Ronnie Kordsmeier’s plan for a 1,980 square-foot duplex to be built next door to his similar project on Hairston Street was approved.

Commissioner George Covington made the motions to approve both projects.

The new duplex will be of the same materials as the first, but the brick will a different color.

Most of the existing trees will be preserved with some new plantings in the green space between the driveways.

Kordsmeier has requested rezoning for the property at 1845 Hairston from R2A to R-2 from the City Council at its meeting on Tuesday.
