UC-0110-11 Details of Neighborhood Meeting and Conditions

 

The proposal attracted some strong opposition from neighbors concerned that 24 hour operations of a C Store and Gas Pumps was inconsistent with surrounding uses and the residential character of the neighborhood. At the request of the TAB, the applicant voluntarily held the item from the 4/12 meeting to allow time to meet with neighbors. That meeting was held at the Senior Center on 4/20/11. 4 neighbors attended and engaged the applicant in a constructive and broad discussion of various issues. The applicant responded by accepting and including most of the suggestions. Rejected was a request to; develop the project elsewhere, or remove gas pumps, and/or operate for less than 24 hours.
