City Council Meeting Recap

Conditional Use Permit for 7-Eleven

Last night City Council approved a conditional use permit to allow for the operation of a gas station and convenience store (7-Eleven) at the corner of Warwick Blvd and Cedar Lane. The vacant former 7-Eleven store parcel will be redeveloped, along with the adjacent vacant parcel on Warwick Boulevard. The developers are constructing a new building with six fueling islands, parking and enhanced landscaping, and maintaining the 30-foot transitional buffer area with existing mature trees augmented with additional plantings. The plan also provides access improvements for vehicles and pedestrians.
