Commercial developers have proposed a Sheetz gas station at the intersection of U.S. Highway 1 and Center Church Road, according to documents on file with the Sanford-Lee County Planning Department.
The proposal, from Massachusetts-based Arista Development, calls for the demolition of existing buildings on the site, which is currently a small shopping strip that includes Tramway Barber Shop. The 6,000 square foot gas station/convenience store/fast food location would feature a drive through and 40 parking spaces. The project is not yet listed on the company’s roster of “active projects.”
Notes from the Sanford-Lee County Planning Department’s Technical Review Committee indicate the property would need to be annexed into the Sanford city limits in order to be developed as proposed, a move that would require action by the Sanford City Council. Only a small portion of the property is currently in the city limits.
