76 Gas Station Coming Soon to Hamner Avenue

Construction is well underway on a new 76 gas station at Town & Country Drive and Hamner Avenue, a project that will feature an automated carwash and convenience store in addition to fuel service. The canopy for the fueling area has already been erected and the convenience store is taking shape. This site was previously used as a parking lot for the Riverside County offices that were located in a building to the south of the proposed station. Because of the site’s high visibility, staff worked very closely with the applicant to ensure that the development’s architecture is well-suited to the Western theme of Horsetown USA. The Planning Commission’s Architectural Review Subcommittee provided input prior to approval of a Conditional Use Permit, and the station operator is interested in using vintage photos of Norco as wall murals. The development will put to use a long-vacated site and generate significant sales tax revenue for the City of Norco.
