Gas station seeks approval to sell beer and wine
WHITTIER – Shell is seeking permission to sell beer and wine when it opens its newly-remodeled gas station and convenience store later this year.
The gas station, located at 12559 Lambert Rd., began an extensive renovation last year, knocking down the existing structure to build a new, larger mini-market and service station.
In August, the gas station applied for a conditional use permit that would allow it to sell beer and wine for off-site consumption.
The Planning Commission will consider the request at its meeting Monday night. Neither city planners nor the police department objected to Shell’s request, on the condition that it agree to certain requirements.
Those requirements include the installation of security cameras, “adequate” lighting, and compliance with local laws that govern the service of alcoholic beverages.
“It is the opinion of staff and the Police Department that the applicant’s request will not have any adverse primary or secondary impacts to the community, with the adoption of the suggested conditions of approval,” community development director Conal McNamara wrote in a report to the Planning Commission.
