Restaurant near Town of Lockport park is approved

LOCKPORT – The Town of Lockport Planning Board approved a site plan this week for a seasonal restaurant to be constructed across from Day Road Park, next to the defunct Belliveau’s Restaurant.

Mark and Lori Parsons plan to erect a 60-by-60-foot building on the 1.09-acre lot to sell burgers, ice cream and similar fare, hoping to cash in on the crowds of children and parents at youth soccer games in the park. The business may not open until 2017, however.

The planners also approved the concept of NOCO expanding its Lockport gas station and convenience store on South Transit Road to include a Tim Hortons and a car wash, as well as a separate fueling area for tractor-trailers and other vehicles that use diesel fuel. However, engineering review and site plan approval are still needed, Building Inspector Brian M. Belson said.
