Stewart’s Shops a step closer to building new Watertown store/gas station
WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) – Stewart’s Shops is a step closer to getting approval to build a new convenience store and gas station on Washington street in Watertown.
By a vote of 5-1, the planning board recommended city council approve a zoning change.
Stewart’s wants to build the almost 4,000-square-foot store on the corner of Flower Avenue East and Washington Street, replacing the existing Washington Street location blocks away.
The new store needs a zoning change because it would encompass 4 plots of land, and one of those is 108 Flower Avenue East, which needs to be zoned “neighborhood business.”
