Changes coming to Cascade Avenue
Last updated 1/31/2023 at Noon
The face of a portion of West Cascade Avenue is in for a big change. The current Space Age gas station at 411 W. Cascade Ave. is slated to be replaced by a much larger station and convenience store.
The Community Development Department has received an application from Stephen Williams for a site plan review and minor conditional use permit to replace the existing Space Age station with an approximately 3,500- sq.-ft. convenience store, a canopied fuel island with 16 gas pumps (eight towers), and related site improvements.
Pliska Investments LLC owns the subject property, which sits between West Cascade and West Hood Avenues and South Pine Street and a vacant lot. Pliska Investments in Clackamas, Oregon, owns or has owned numerous gas stations, a golf course, and a hotel.
Currently occupying the back portion of the property are the two summer businesses, Richard’s Produce and C & C Nursery. From the site plan, it appears that they would no longer be in their current locations.
The 16-pump fuel island will sit on the front one-quarter of the property adjacent to Cascade, with the convenience store and parking areas covering the remaining three-quarters of the property.
The decision issued will be a Type II administrative decision, made by the Community Development staff. There will be no public hearing unless the Planning Commission or City Council decides to call it up.
