Dandy Mart plans additional diesel pumps in Dundee   ADVERTISEMENT

Dandy Mart plans additional diesel pumps in Dundee

DUNDEE—The preliminary site plan submitted by Dandy Mart to the village of Dundee planning board last month indicates a new canopy could be built at 45 Water St., where there is currently an existing building which would be demolished, to accommodate diesel customers. Village Building and Zoning Enforcement Officer Gary Boardman said the site plan by Fagan Engineers in Elmira has not been approved yet and was sent back for additional work.
Boardman said the purpose of the project is to install four new fuel pumps under the 109-foot by 25-foot fuel canopy which will include diesel fuel for trucks to get it farther away from the Dandy Mart building. The preliminary site plan also indicates a large paved area, behind the fuel canopy extending back into the property. Currently, there is an existing building located at 45 Water St. Village Clerk Christine Sutherland said Dandy Mart had picked up an application for demolition, but it has not been returned.
Boardman said there is a lot more work that needs to be done to the plan before it is considered for approval. Boardman said Dandy Mart did not know the size of the diesel tank they were looking to put in or where it will be located on the property.
He said one of the issues the plan presented included was part of the area that goes back into a residential zone. Boardman said if the plan stays the way it is, Dandy Mart will need a buffer. He said the buffer they are showing around the residential zone is “not going to fly.”
Boardman also cited traffic concerns as another issue with the plan. He said there are issues with the traffic flow, and once the diesel tank goes in there will be more traffic. Boardman said being near the school and a residential zone presents additional problems for the plan.
Another problem Boardman addressed was with a drainage pipe that runs underneath the paved area. He said the pipe may have to be looked at, and if it were bigger it would be able to take more water coming down from the school. Boardman said they may hear additional plans or changes by December or the first of the year.
The Observer requested comments about the preliminary plans from a spokesperson at Williams Oil Company (corporate owner of the Dandy Mart brand) but did not receive a call back by press time.
