St. Augustine 7-Eleven appeal denied
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A new 7-Eleven will be not coming to one St. Augustine corner.
Angry neighbors made their objections known to the Historic Architectural Review Board on Thursday. The appeal was denied 4-0.
Neighbors say the corner of May Street and San Marco is a traffic nightmare at any time of day.
Add a 7-Eleven, and Jean Cazazza said you're asking for trouble.
"It's just going to make a bad situation so much worse," she said.
The convenience store was trying to get a permit to build on that corner. One denial from the city of St. Augustine led to an appeal, which was being fought Thursday.
A representative for or 7-Eleven said the company was abiding by the code, working with FDOT and was willing to negotiate.
