On Monday, Council supported the Zoning By-law Amendment to a site specific Neighbourhood Commercial “NC-108” that allows a gas station. As well, Council approved the proposed Site Plan Agreement with 4 High Street Inc. subject to a limit of a four island gas station and increasing landscaping and buffering.
