ORLEANS, MA – The Cape Cod Commision opened a pro-forma hearing on March 5, 2010 concerning a proposed Stop & Shop self-service gas mart at the existing Cranberry Cove Plaza located on Route 6A in Orleans, MA.
The proposal includes the construction of a 10-pump facility in the southerly portion of the parcel currently comprising paved parking. According to the DRI application, the project is slated to include five gas islands covered with a canopy. In addition to a 60 square foot kiosk, (1) 10,000 gallon and (1) 30,000 gallon underground storage tanks are also specified.
Although several existing gas stations have been extensively renovated over the years, if approved as currently proposed the Orleans project will comprise the first new gas station facility to be established in Barnstable County, MA in many years.
Anyone interested in reviewing the file on this proposed DRI project, may contact Andrea Adams, Senior Regulatory Planner with the Cape Cod Commission at (508) 362-3828 to schedule an appointment.
