Development hearing delayed

Updated: Oct 5, 2020

CANTON – The Canton Planning and Zoning Commission’s public hearing for a proposed multi-faceted development on the Simsbury-Canton town line has been delayed to later this month.


The proposal at 9-15 Albany Turnpike includes plans for a two-story electric vehicle showroom with a service component and public display and a gas station/store with 20 pumps, as well as an ice cream shop, coffee shop, sandwich shop, outdoor seating area and drive through components.


A site plan and special exception application field by Solli Engineering on behalf of 9-15 Albany Turnpike, LLC, was to be the subject of a Sept. 16 hearing, as noted in the previous edition of The Valley Press. However, town officials said some revisions in the application necessitated a new legal notice, pushing back the date.


The hearing is anticipated to take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 21.

The exact agenda for that meeting will be posted on the town of Canton’s web site at http://townofcantonct.org/agendas-minutes-meetings later this month. Agendas, as well as meeting packets, can be found in the drop-down menus on that page.
