Salem planning board expected to vote on Cumberland Farms plan

SALEM — The planning board is expected to make a final decision on a new Cumberland Farms store and gas station at its meeting on Tuesday night.

The board opened the public hearing in February, but delayed making a final decision pending the resolution of some minor engineering details.

The new 4,500-square-foot building at 328 South Broadway would replace a 9,000-square-foot multi-tenant building and gas station on the site.

Although the size of the building will be cut in half from the existing one, Cumberland Farms is proposing increasing the number of gas pumps on the property from 12 to 16.

The site plan was originally brought before the planning board in 2012 but was delayed to resolve some legal matters, according to Ross Moldoff, town planning director.

Moldoff said the proposal meets many of the goals of the town’s master plan, such as improving the architectural design, increasing landscaping and redeveloping an older commercial property.

Project engineer Chris Tumula of MHF design said the project will significantly increase landscaping on the site and enhance the stormwater management system.

During the February planning board meeting, Phyllis O’Grady praised the Cumberland Farms proposal, saying she though it was a good design and plan for the town.aswift@newstote.com
