Gardnerville hosts gas station workshop

Staff Reports

Gardnerville will be hosting a public workshop on Saturday to show plans for the future of the former Eagle Gas Station on Highway 395, and ask residents for their ideas.

The workshop will be 9-11 a.m. at the site, 1392 Highway 395.

The town acquired the gas station in June after it was taken over by the county. Attempts to sell the station failed to raise enough money to cover its tax bill.

According to Gardnerville Town Manager Tom Dallaire the station’s fuel tanks aren’t leaking, which was a major concern.

Under three plans that will be presented to the public on Saturday, one removes all the structures for off-street parking, another puts more landscaping on the site and a third leaves the building that could be used as an office for Main Street Gardnerville, the visitors center and a meeting room.

The site could also serve as a bus stop for downtown.
