VFW concerned about impact on memorial

A proposed development in Kaukauna is running into some opposition from a veterans group.

The VFW post in the city is concerned about how a Kwik Trip gas station, on Lawe Street, would affect the Ring of Honor, in Veterans Memorial Park.

Art Hopfensperger of the VFW says the station would be next to the memorial, and it would impact the lighting. He says members of his group are joining others to put together a petition.

Hopfensperger says they would also lose parking for their events. Kwik Trip is offering to let people use the station's parking lot, but Hopfensperger says there wouldn't be enough spaces.

He says they hope the city will change the site plans, for the former Gustman car lot, to provide more separation.
