Danbury Planners consider application by Cumberland Farms for Federal Road gas station

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.  A special exception is needed.  The facility is expected to generate over 500 vehicle trips per day.
The space previously house 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.  Planning Department officials clarified that it's technically a grocery store because of its size, but is being referred to as a convenience store.
The current structure at the site is connected to a Quality Inn hotel.  That connector would be removed and replaced with landscaping.  The proposal calls for extending the sidewalk from the hotel across the gas station property to the wetlands.
The intersection with International Drive would be turned into a four-way traffic signal, with the driveway realigned.  The commission will take up the application June 20th.
