Kelowna’s new Costco gasbar will have 24 pumps, city documents show.

The warehouse, which is is located in between three major roads with Baron Road situated to the west, Leckie Road to the east and a portion of Springfield Road to the south will have a  gas bar canopy located near the western boundary of the site.

“(It) has been designed to allow vehicles to queue in line to the east of the canopy structure and move westward to fill vehicles and subsequently exit the site onto Underhill Street,” the Costco document reads.

“The structure will include 12 two-sided gas pumps which will serve up to two vehicles each to allow for a maximum of 24 vehicles to pump simultaneously.”

There were be six service bays/service aisles will serve the 12 total pumps and will allow for three to four queuing spaces per service bay to meet the minimum zoning bylaw requirements for vehicle-oriented uses.

City council is expected Monday to issue a form and character permit for the new store and gas station tomorrow.

Plans show the warehouse covering 167,000 square feet. The gas bar will cover 9,000 square feet.
