Underground propane storage facility proposed in Alma

Mapleton Township council is considering a zoning amendment that would clear the way for a large underground propane storage facility here.

An application by Core Fuels to add a provision for “bulk fuel storage” to the site-specific Highway Commercial zoning of a property at 6976 Wellington Road 7 was discussed during a July 14 public meeting of council, held via videoconference.

Bulk fuel depots are currently only permitted in a General Industrial (M1) zone.

The 9.05 acre site currently contains a 4,800 square foot office building. The applicant also owns the neighbouring site at 6974 Wellington Road 7, which has a Fast Stop gas refuelling station for public use.
