New Delta Sonic on Boulevard back on Planning Board agenda

A Delta Sonic proposed for Niagara Falls Boulevard is on the agenda for Thursday's Amherst Planning Board meeting after the project was delayed for months to give the developer time to meet with neighbors to address their concerns.

The company is planning to build a car wash, gas station, oil change building, convenience store and drive-thru restaurant at the longtime home of Menne Nursery, which is moving.

The 10-acre site sits between Niagara Falls Boulevard and Old Niagara Falls Boulevard, just north of East Robinson Road.

Delta Sonic needs a zoning change from general business to motor service.

Some residents expressed concern at the June Planning Board meeting about increased traffic. The developer recently conducted another traffic study, and decided to no longer allow customers access from Old Niagara Falls Boulevard, said Ellen Kost, an associate town planner.
