Plans for a new gas station and convenience store on Centerline Road have moved a step closer.
Even as another station is under construction along the south shore road, across the Westin, a Senate committee hear a request from Guilderoy Sprauve Jr. to permit him to build a three-bay gas station on land now zoned residential.
According to a report of the Committee of the Whole meeting in the Virgin Islands Daily News, the Department of Natural Resources is agreeable to the variance.
To move further, a Senator needs to back the plan and submit a bill authorizing the change. The station near the Westin is expected to be complete by next February, the Daily News reported.
