Gas pumps are coming to Costco in Town Brookhaven.
A Costco representative confirmed to Patch that ground breaking for the new additions will be sometime in February.
Last year, the store's proposal to put in a gas station ran into opposition from the community.
At a meeting with DeKalb County's planning department, three area residents, one of whom is a Costco member, and an Oglethorpe University representative spoke out against the gas station, citing potential issues like long lines spilling out onto two-lane Hermance Drive and creating traffic jams.
Oglethorpe was concerned about property devaluation and wanted Costco to help fund a pedestrian walkway from the school to Town Brookhaven, an idea that has been rejected.
