Orleans, MA – Developers of a proposed Stop & Shop self-service gas mart at the Cranberry Cove Plaza on Route 6A in Orleans, MA announced in May 2010 their decision to withdraw the project. While under review, the project was accepted as a Development of Regional Impact (DR-09021) following a discretionary referral by the Town of Orleans. The Cape Cod Commission officially accepted the applicant’s withdrawl of the project on June 10, 2010.
Correspendence indicated that the Applicant decided not to proceed with the project at this time after evaluating the proposal in light of Cape Cod Commission requirements, the estimated length of review process, and uncertainty regarding both the review and potential mitigation.
As previously reported, the proposal included the construction of a 10-pump facility with 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 were also specified.
