Planning Commission delays action on gas storage facility

The city’s Planning Commission delayed action on an application to convert the Quarles Petroleum facility into one for gasoline storage and distribution.

Mayfield residents have questions and  expect to meet with a representative from Lincoln Terminal next week.

Lincoln Terminal plans to buy the facility if it can get approval to convert the propane operation into one for storage and distribution of gasoline, bio-diesel and ethanol.

The site is located at 1500 Beulah Salisbury Drive, which is behind Dixon Park and borders the Rappahannock River. The site sits on the opposite side of Dixon Street from Mayfield.
