proposed gas station

Plans have been denied for a new gas station/convenience store at 919 Colfax Ave., across from Benton Harbor High School.

BENTON HARBOR — The site plan for a proposed convenience store/gas station near Benton Harbor High School was denied by Benton Harbor planning commissioners this week in an effort to protect nearby residents.

Chairman Lee Reed said the decision was made during Tuesday’s meeting due to a conflict with city ordinances.
