Council approves request for change to Quarles site for Lincoln Terminal

The City Council just unanimously approved a request from Lincoln Terminal Co. to convert the Quarles Petroleum site into a storage and distribution facility for gas, biodiesel and ethanol.

Two people expressed concerns about the proposal including former councilman Hashmel Turner.

However, Councilwoman Bea Paolucci said each of his concerns have been addressed during the review process. Those concerns included safety and evacuation procedures.

Paolucci noted that the fire department and fire marshal are satisfied with safety plans in place and have said no one evacuation plan can satisfy all scenarios.

Quarles Petroleum currently operates a propane distribution facility on 10.2 acres at 1500 Beulah Salisbury Road off Dixon Street.

The company plans to sell the property to Lincoln Terminal and move its operation across the street to the 2.47-acre site where Service Tire Truck Center now operates. That property is in neighboring Spotsylvania County.
