Public meeting over proposed gas station in Portage

PORTAGE, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's already been postponed twice, but a public hearing is set for Thursday night at Portage City Hall.

The topic is a new gas station for the city.

Portage city staff are recommending that the planning commission deny the special use permit request from Great Lakes Convenience for the new gas station.

They want to build it at the former Centre Street Market on East Centre Avenue.

A new report from the Portage Community Development Department says the proposal is not consistent with land use and development goals for the city.

This site is close to a Montessori school and some residents are concerned about the traffic a gas station would bring.

Thursday night's hearing is set for 7:00.
