Valero seeking to enlarge San Carlos gas station at Jackson & Navajo

Posted by George J Janczyn on March 15, 2010

The gas station at the corner of Navajo Road and Jackson Drive in San Carlos may get a new look if a proposal by Valero is approved. According to John Pilch, President of the San Carlos Area Council (SCAC), Valero would demolish and remake the existing gas station with the addition of a car wash and convenience store. I asked for information about the permit request from the San Diego Development Services Department but they have not responded; however, the proposal is on the agenda for the next SCAC meeting April 7 at 7pm in the San Carlos Branch Library.

Mar 17: The station manager informed me that it is not Valero’s proposal, but rather the property owner who has a lease with Valero who wishes to expand. He said the owner began the process about one year ago and that “the city keeps coming up with new objections” to the plan.
