Proposed gas bar plaza on Modeland clears another hurdle

A developer planning to build a gas bar and convenience store at the northwest corner of Modeland Road and Berger Road is free to finalize a site plan.

The city approved the land’s rezoning in July but a citizen objected to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal, formerly the Ontario Municipal Board.

That citizen’s appeal has since been withdrawn, City Hall says.

The proposal also calls for a carwash, dog wash and restaurant drive-through on the 1.5-acre property.

Plans call for two traffic access points from southbound Modeland and Berger Road, through an easement across the Suncor Nature Way trail.

Because the commercial plaza would be located in a floodplain, input on stormwater management is still required from the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority, the city says.
