Danbury gas station gets lease approval for city land

The Danbury City Council has signed off on a request from a business for a license agreement for the use of City property.  Shell gas station on Newtown Road is looking to use 3,000 square feet of city-owned land on Old Sherman Turnpike for parking.  The owners suggested paying $1,000 a year for use of the land for 7 spaces.  The agreement would be for 10 years, renewed automatically unless terminated.  The additional parking is required under zoning regulations due to a proposed expansion.  Outside Counsel noted that the City Council can't provide stipulations on signage in the agreement.  The license agreement is contingent on Planning and Zoning approvals.  The proposed $2.2 million facility upgrade will result in an expanded convenience store, landscaping and lighting.  There would be an additional 4,700 square feet, and 6 new canopied gas pumps.  When the project is complete the gas station will add two full time and three part time employees.
