Board says gas station unlikely to be approved
LOCKPORT -- A proposed Tops Express gas station and convenience store is unlikely to win approval, the town Planning Board warned the architect this week.
The building and eight fuel pumps would be built on a 88-foot-wide parcel between a dentist's office and an insurance office located across South Transit Road from the Tops Market.
"I think it's a very difficult property for the use you want. It's very small," Town Attorney Daniel E. Seaman told architect Robert Dollman during the Tuesday night Planning Board meeting.
Dollman said he'd take it up with Phil Perna, the owner of the Lockport Tops, but Dollman said, "Maybe [Perna] needs to look at an alternate parcel. I would love to do this work for him, but you've got to be realistic."
