Approval process underway for new gas station, car wash in Alliston

Posted September 13, 2012

The vacant lot on the south east side of King and Victoria Street is now the subject of a rezoning application that seeks to reduce the required building setbacks to accommodate a gas station, car wash, and small convenience store operation.

Because the uses are permitted, the proponent is proceeding concurrently through the Town's site plan approval process. The setback adjustments are necessary to make all the pieces fit.

Boyer Chev Olds was the last business to operate at the location, which had been home to several car dealerships over the years in Alliston. Boyer abandoned and eventually cleared the property and moved to a new showroom on Hwy 89 and Conc. 7 in Adjala-Tosorontio - it ceased operation over three years ago as part of GM's restructuring of its dealership network.

A numbered Ontario company purchased the empty lot back in March 2010 for $680,000 from Mineral Road Properties Inc., of Pickering whose president was listed as Brandon Boyer.

Included in the planning hurdles that must be cleared as part of the approvals process include environmental (soil contamination) and site plan (traffic, landscaping etc).

The newest gas station in Alliston is the Canadian Tire gas bar located on Young Street and 8th Avenue. The full-serve Beaver gas station on Victoria and Dufferin Street has been demolished and is being replaced by a new self-serve Shell station that will include a convenience store. And within the past couple of weeks the full-serve Esso gas station on Victoria and Walnut Street has closed down and its pumps removed. Whether that is related to this application, at this post, was not confirmed.
