  Zoning Commission Denies Meijer’s Request For Gas Station  
  January 30, 2020 Edition  
     Meeting last week, the Boardman Township Zoning Commission, by a unanimous vote, denied a proposal by Meijer’s to build a gas station at Lockwood Blvd. and Tippecanoe Rd.
      The firm has proposed building a 3,330 sq. ft. gas station/convenience store on property currently occupied by two homes.
      A Meijer’s spokesman, Real Estate Manager Chris Jones, said the firm has been negotiating to buy those properties, that are located across Lockwood Blvd. from the site of their proposed new facility.
      Zoning Commission Chairman Peter Lymber expressed concerns on traffic flows, as did Boardman Road Superintendent Marilyn Kenner, who lives on Lockwood Blvd. and spoke in objection to the proposal as a private citizen.
      Meijer’s has proposed to build a new facility bounded by Lockwood Blvd. and Rt. 224 on a 39-acre site, 17-acres of which would be developed at a cost of between $20 million to $25 million.
      The zoning commission’s decision last week can now be submitted to Township Trustees, who have heard concerns about increased traffic flows from many residents who live just north of the proposed development.
      Speaking before the zoning commission, Jones said Meijer’s has plans to break ground in February. He said deed restrictions prevent the firm from building a gas station on the 39-acre site.
