The Newtown Zoning Hearing Board (ZHB) hearing to determine the fate of Provco/Wawa’s requests for variances continued on August 18, 2021.

At this meeting, David C. Babbitt, AICP NJPP, President of David C. Babbitt & Associates, LLC, Land Planning Consultants, provided expert testimony opposing variances to zoning requested by Wawa (listen to his testimony below).
