Board approves new downtown gas station Neenah Minimart received approval from the City Board of Appeals for a light variance at 222 Jackson St., at the southeast corner of Jackson Street and High Avenue. Plan documents call for renovating the existing building, which many years ago was a gas station, into a gas station and convenience store.
