Smiths Falls town councillors are supporting a proposal to build a new gas station and car wash on Lombard Street.
The new business, a Petro Canada station, car wash and convenience is to be located at 96 Lombard St., between Scotiabank and Walmart, councillors were told in a planning department report presented June 19. The space is currently occupied by a vacant building which formerly housed a boat works service shop.
The town’s planning staff have recommended that council approve the plans, submitted by business owner Pardeep Rai. A bylaw to authorize a site plan control agreement will be voted on by council at a June 26 meeting.
