A review of land development plans for a proposed Wawa on the Newtown Bypass has been postponed until September [probably at the September 28, 2022, Board of Supervisors meeting].

 

The township asked for and received an extension of time from Provco Pinegood Ltd. until September 30, according to township manager Micah Lewis.

 

The plan had originally been scheduled to expire on August 15 and Provco had been planning to appear before the supervisors at its August 10 meeting seeking final land development approvals.

 

At the board's last meeting in early July, the supervisors said they would ask Provco for an extension to September to avoid the summer vacation season when many residents are away.

 

"August 10th is a particular high point in the vacation season," said Supervisor John Mack. "I'd like to see this meeting happen when more of the public can be present."

 

Chairman Dennis Fisher agreed. "I would like to see this go into September so that people can be informed and not have to worry about being on vacation."

If no further extension is granted, Provco would need to secure approvals from the township prior to its plan expiration date of September 30.

 

The five member board of supervisors was poised to vote in May on preliminary as final plans for a Wawa convenience store and gas station at Lower Silver Lake Road when the agenda item was pulled from consideration by Provco (read “Newtown Wawa Developers Just Stood Up Supervisors at a Big Meeting. What Does This Mean for the Project?”)

 

In April, the township's planning commission had recommended denial of the preliminary as final land development plans for the 5,585 square foot convenience store and gas station (view video "
