Newtown Planning Commission Reviewed Chop't Application. Not All Members Agreed to Recommend Its Approval to the Board of Supervisors.

Newtown Planning Commission Reviewed Chop't Application. Not All Members Agreed to Recommend Its Approval to the Board of Supervisors. | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

At the May 18, 2021, Newtown Planning Commission (PC) Zoom meeting, Joseph M. Blackburn, Partner with Wisler Pearlstine, presented an overview of a "conditional" use application by the Chop't Creative Salad Company, LLC. The application is for a 2,500 sf Chop't restaurant to be located at 2910 S. Eagle Road in the Village at Newtown Shopping Center.

This use would bring the percent of square footage allocated for restaurant use in the shopping center to about 31%. The total allowable percentage for such use is - believe it or not - 45%! So, there is still significantly more restaurant use allowable.

The focus of the discussion was on the outdoor eating area. 

 

Listen to the discussion and view the plans...

johnmacknewtown's insight:

One member of the Planning Commission person "nay" to recommend approval of this application by the Newtown Board of Supervisors because of parking issues in the area. With 10-12 employees, parking spaces will be at a premium (The application indicates 10-12 employees for the first shift and 4-5 employees for the 2nd shift are expected on the two proposed shifts). Considering that there are or will be about 10 businesses in that section, they will eat up (pun!) about half of the 200 or so spaces in the area.
