Arogas withdraws Mr.Fuel application
The company that wanted to put a fourth truck stop near the Carmel Church and Bowling Green exit off Interstate 95 has withdrawn its application to build a Mr.Fuel.
Missouri-based Arogas withdrew its application on May 1 to build a Mr.Fuel near Routes 652 and 207 in Caroline County.
The application was withdrawn without a reason given, said a member of the county’s planning staff.
Arogas, which owns Mr. Fuel, asked that one of the restrictions on the land be modified to allow truck service and repair facilities, which would permit a truck stop. Mr. Fuel already operates a truck stop near that location.
The Planning Commission also held a work session last week and did not make any decisions regarding giving definitions to “rural resort,” “museum,” and “general store” in the zoning ordinance. The planners want “tweaks” to be made to the definitions.
