Despite some objections from neighbors, plans for a service station across the road from the Westin Resort are likely to be approved by the government.
The St. John Source quotes an official with the Department of Planning and Natural Resources saying there's a 'high probability' a permit for a 24-hour gas station and convenience store on the South Shore road will be approved.
At a public hearing, one St. John resident supported the project saying the island needs a second source for gasoline.
The Source also reported that the owners of the property have agreed to make changes to their original plan. Signage will not be on top of the building, but rather alongside. And hours of operation have been scaled back from 24/day to something close to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
