Planning commission rejects Gahanna Sheetz

GAHANNA, Ohio (WCMH) — A proposal to build a Sheetz gas station and convenience store was voted down Wednesday night.

Members of the Gahanna Planning Commission rejected three applications that were up for approval, saying the proposal was not in the best interest of the community. Sheetz and its partners have 30 days to appeal.

The proposal has been in the works in late last year but has become controversial in recent weeks on social media.

On Jan. 26, the Gahanna Board of Zoning and Building Appeals reversed an earlier decision and greenlit the construction project of the eventual Sheetz, which would be located on a plot between Johnstown and Morse roads near Donatos Pizza and High Bank Distillery.

The city itself did not pursue the project, but Gahanna Mayor Laurie Jadwin told members of the city council on Monday night that it is now in motion regardless.

“When a private property owner wants to develop a parcel of property, they have the right to do so as long as it is consistent in the matter in which that property is zoned,” Jadwin said at the meeting.
