Allentown City Council moves new store project forward

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Allentown City Council approved a sewage facilities planning module for a new Turkey Hill store under construction during Wednesday night's meeting.
 
The new gas station and 5,000-square-foot convenience store is being built at the corner of 15th Street and Sumner Avenue.
 
Director of Public Works Craig Messinger said the city had the capacity to provide the roughly 4,100 gallons the store is requesting on a daily basis. He added the project does not include a car wash as original discussions indicated. 
 
Original plans included the addition of a left-turn lane into the property along southbound 15th Street and widening North Fulton Street to accommodate turning lanes onto Sumner Avenue. Other recommendations when presented before the planning commission last year incorporated into the plans is a decorative fence along the 15th Street side of the property and sidewalk along North Fulton Street from 15th Street to the residential area.
 
In other news, council approved the appointment of John Stanley to the ANIZDA board. Councilman Juilo Guridy described Stanley as a "great gentlemen and a great addition" to the board and praised his resume.
