DORIS SULLIVAN » EOM SON »ntf The proposed construction of a gasoline service station at Myrtle avenue and East State street, rejected by the Zoning Board of Appeals four years ago, will be considered again by the Appeals board at a public hearing April 4 at 7:45 p.m. in Ihe town courtroom. The applicants are Arthur M. Hunter, Jr., owner of the property and the Mobil Oil corporation. The proposal involves the relocation of a gasoline service station at 165 East State street lo the new site. In connection with the proposal, the applicants are offering an casement to the town to permit the widening of Myrtle avenue and its connection with East State street. They contend that the present location is cramped and undesirable for safe and modern service, and the new location is larger and situated at an intersection which provides safer access. Plans for the development of the corner arc the same as those submitted in 1964, when the easement was also offered lo the town. However, in the meantime, drainage pipes have been installed in Ihe area which apparently will ease the drainage problem which was ciled by the appeals board four years ago as one of the reasons for denying the application. At that time, the board also stated t h a t the area was not suitable for use as a gasoline station because proximity of churches, schools, the Playhouse and other public meeting places would cause a t r a f - fic safety hazard. The board will consider two requests at the hearing sponsored by the Tuwn. O n e application postponed from the March hearing, Involves property at 173 Newtown turnpike, a portion of which Is needed by the town in the reconstruction of the highway. The proposed waiver is requested in order to legalize the remaining section of the tract, owned by Lindley Campbell. The town is also a co-applicant with Ina May Summers, for a similar variance for property at 74 Rosevillc road to permit reconstruction of the road. The application calls for the approval of reducing the non-conforming tract from .957 to .927 acres The applicants at the April hearing also include the August Matthias post, American Legion, which seeks permission to conduct a carnival from May 13 through 18 on a tract on the Post road and South Mornine- side drive. Other applications have been filed as follows: Harvey L Koizim, permit to install a clock at 143 Main street within IS feet from the street; Joan Morrow Berglund, permit to construct a garage at 5 Blind Brook lane- Joseph McKeon, trustee, and Elizabeth Bradjey, approval of a lot on Bayberry lane.
