7-11 proposes gas station for former Bennigan's site

The Danbury Zoning Board of Appeals has approved a location for sale of gasoline at the old Bennigan's site.  This is the second proposal in recent years for the long vacant property.  This one comes from 7-11.  In 2018 the site was approved as a Cumberland Farms gas station.  Attorney Amy Souchuns says plans were scrapped by Cumberland Farms before the pandemic, and now 7-11 is looking to locate to the acre and a half lot. While the wetlands permit was transferred in the spring, some 20 years ago legislature repealed a criteria for suitability for gas stations, but never replaced it with anything so the location approval couldn't be transferred automatically.  The applicant has proposed modest modifications and improvements to the 2018 site plan.  The proposed changes are before Danbury land use for administrative review.  They proposed greater set back of the pumps from the property lines.
