Raleigh planners approve new Sheetz
Posted June 28, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Despite opposition from neighbors, a new Sheetz gas station and convenience store could soon be built near a residential community.
Planning Commissioners approved the rezoning for a 6-acre lot on the corner of North New Hope Church and Buffaloe roads. The proposed rezoning would change the property from Residential-6 to Neighborhood Business Conditional Use and allow for the construction of a Sheetz gas station and convenience store.
The application was approved in a 5-3 vote with Commissioners Eric Braun, Steven Schuster, Quince Fleming, Erin Sterling-Lewis, and Isabel Mattox voting in support.
Commissioners Marvin Butler, Adam Terando, and Mitch Fluhrer voted in opposition.
