A decision on whether to allow a proposed Delta Sonic that would replace Menne Nursery on Niagara Falls Boulevard was delayed until next month.
The Amherst Town Board agreed to hold off on making a decision on a zoning change until its Dec. 11 meeting.
The Planning Board last month voted, 5-1, to recommend rezoning the 10-acre property between Niagara Falls Boulevard and Old Niagara Falls Boulevard, from general business to motor service.
Delta Sonic would build a car wash, gas station, oil change building, convenience store and drive-thru restaurant on the site of the nursery, which is moving.
Council members asked the chain's representatives to prepare a list of agreed upon conditions for the approval, and meet with the Amherst Conservation Advisory Council to address its environmental concerns.
