STURBRIDGE — Potential developers of a service station next to the former Rom's Restaurant have still not been approved by town officials.

At a continuation of a previous public hearing on Tuesday, the Sturbridge Planning Board heard from Mike Loin of Burton Engineering, the firm in charge of the potential project, about some of the specific aspects of a possible gasoline and service station planned for what is currently the parking lot next to the Rom's building, which is its own parcel with a separate address.

Joseph Daou, owner of the Shell gas station on Route 169 in Southbridge, recently acquired the parcel at 173 Main St. in Sturbridge, on which he plans to open another establishment featuring a convenience store in addition to the auto-related services.
