The Dutch conglomerate Royal Ahold is putting up gas stations in its super Stop & Shop parking lots. In Cumberland, RI, Stop & Shop is looking to put a gas station on its parking lot in a floodplain. They need two special permits from the Zoning Board to do so.
Letters are needed to: Theresa McMichael, Chairperson, Cumberland Zoning Board of Review, Box 7, Cumberland, RI 02864-0007. Tell her you oppose big box stores putting gas stations in their parking lots, especially in a floodplain. Tell her gas and water do not mix. Or, you can call her at 401-728-2400.
