A public hearing was set for Aug. 19 for changes to property at “Bailey Station” near Thomas Crossroads for a Dunkin’ Donuts location.


Action regarding a major renovation of the Newnan RaceTrac store, and action related to a new restaurant and a potential Dunkin’ Donuts, was taken this week by the Coweta County Board of Commissioners.

An expansion is planned at the RaceTrac gas station and store on Bullsboro Drive. The company has purchased the property to the east – an old convenience store that is now a tire shop – to make room for the expansion.

The commissioners granted several variances requested by RaceTrac Petroleum Inc.

According to the county planning department report, plans are to “totally renovate and update” the store.

The expanded store will be 5,200 square feet, with 728 square feet of fast food, including fresh food delivered daily and “Swirl World” frozen yogurt. There will also be indoor and outdoor seating.

In other business-related action Tuesday, a beer and wine license was granted for Eladia’s Authentic Mexican Cosina, to be located at 1485 Hwy. 34 East in the former location of Los Gordos.

And a public hearing was set for Aug. 19 for changes to property at “Bailey Station” near Thomas Crossroads for a Dunkin’ Donuts location. The property was originally rezoned in 2001, and is located on Hwy. 34 East just west of Andrew Bailey Road.

Plans call for a 2,500-square-foot Dunkin’ Donuts store. The owner and developer is “Dunkin’ Brands."
