The ESSO gas station and depanneur closed suddenly earlier this summer after serving as a local convenience spot for a very long time. Speculation ran wild as to what would open next. Soon after, Shell posted signs on site indicated a new station was in the works. Last night, city council gave initial approval to the installation of a new gas bar, depanneur and automatic car wash to be located on this site located at the corner of Cavendish Boulevard and Mackle Road.
City council adopted the first draft by-law regarding the rezoning of this land. A public consultation meeting will be held soon. Once all of the necessary approvals are given, demolition of the property will commence. Expect completion of this project next spring or summer.
