Rising from the Ashes of the Sugar Shack
CLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Clarion County Planning Commission at its May meeting authorized a variety of letters of support. The Commission approved preliminary and final land development applications, including preliminary approval for construction of a 3,040 square foot building in Clarion Township that would replace the burned out Sugar Shack.
“Besides the details of the land development application such as the size of the building, that’s all I can say,” said County Engineer Kevin Reichard.
He did say that it would not be called the Sugar Shack after questioning from some of his board members, leaving the future use of such a building up in the air.
The Planning Commission does not control the use of a facility but concentrates on what are the physical specifications for a building and stormwater management.
The Sugar Shack was located along Route 66, south of Exit 64, Interstate 80.
According to published reports, the June 29, 2017 fire at the Sugar Shack is an open and ongoing investigation conducted by the Pennsylvania State Police Fire Marshal. Damages were estimated at $300,000.00.
Kristy Gregor of Wexford, owner of the former Sugar Shack, is the applicant for the project but did not return a telephone request for additional information Monday.
