The Danbury Planning Commission is considering a gas station and convenience store for a long vacant building.  Representatives from Cumberland Farms made a presentation to the Commission last week for the 106 Federal Road property. 


The space previously housed Bennigan's Grill and Tavern, but that was more than a decade ago.  The building would be demolished to clear the way for a 5,300-square-foot convenience store, two 20,000-gallon underground gas storage tanks and six double-sided gas pumps. 


The intersection with International Drive would be turned into a four-way traffic signal, with the driveway realigned.  A special exception is needed.  The facility is expected to generate over 500 vehicle trips per day.


The commission will take up the application June 20th.
