The Gloucester City Planning Board last week approved the demolition of a dilapidated building in the 300 block of Jersey Avenue.
Property owner Ben Slater, of Brooklawn, plans to build a soda fountain-type establishment, which will sell ice cream, water ice, hotdogs, etc.
Slater has been before the Board several times already, seeking feedback and approval for his ideas. He had initially planned to renovate the existing building, but found the structure was too far gone to be saved.
Slater will present plans for the new building at the Board’s December meeting.
In other business, improvements to the following three properties in the City’s Historic District were also approved: 200 block of Cumberland Street, 200 block of South King Street, and 200 block of Powell Street.
The Board will meet again at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 20 in the City Administration Building, Monmouth Street.
