(UPDATE: Feb. 1 @ 10:45 am ) – A proposed Co-op gas bar, convenience store and touchless car wash is one step closer to becoming reality.
A development permit was supported by a unanimous vote by city council on Tuesday.
The proposed gas bar will be located at 7750 Dallas Drive, which is across the highway from the Petro Pass off Kokanee Way.
The vacant 0.88 hectare lot is located at the entrance of the Campbell Creek Industrial Park and city staff say the future gas station will not only serve residents and business in the area but also people travelling in and out of Kamloops.
Vancouver-based Dialog Architecture will construct a 268 square metre store, a 125 square metre car wash and a fuel bar with six gas pumps. There will be 14 parking stalls and four stalls for electric vehicles.
City staff will issue the development permit once the city receives a landscape security payment from the developers.
(Original story: Jan. 28 @ 12:24 pm) – On Tuesday, Kamloops council will be reviewing a development permit application for a Co-op gas bar, convenience store and car wash in the Dallas area.
Vancouver-based Dialog Architecture is proposing to build the gas station on a lot on Dallas Drive, near Kokanee Way and the Trans-Canada Highway.
According to the report headed to council, the 0.88 hectare lot is currently vacant and already zoned C4 – Service Commercial, which permits this type of building.
“The property is located at the entrance to the Campbell Creek Industrial Park, a highly visible tract of land that is appropriate for the development of service commercial and light to general industrial uses,” says the report.
The developer is looking to construct a 268 square metre store, a 125 square metre car wash and a fuel bar at 7750 Dallas Drive, across the highway from the Petro Pass gas station.
There would be six gas pumps, 14 parking stalls and two van-accessible stalls, which exceeds the minimum requirement of seven parking stalls. There would also be an additional four stalls for electric vehicle charging.
In December 2020, city council modified an existing restrictive covenant that would allow for the construction of a fuel bar and restaurant, however, autobody, machine and welding shops and commercial cardlock facilities are not prohibited on this property to avoid land use conflicts with neighbouring businesses.
City staff say the addition of this gas station would increase services for residents living in the area and people working at the businesses in the Campbell Creek Industrial Park.
Kamloops council will review this application during the regular meeting scheduled for Jan. 31 at 1:30 pm.
