Costco gas pumps could face more hurdles

Posted: Updated:

A new twist for drivers hoping for cheap gas at Costco in Colchester -- the state now wants to require more permits for the plan.

The Agency of Natural Resources says it wants to re-classify the wetlands around Costco  - as class 2 wetlands. That means development at the site will need extra scrutiny. A hearing is set for June.

The move could help gas station magnate Skip Vallee - who owns a station near Costco - and has been fighting to stop Costco's development.
