Two months after shutting down a plan for a Wawa at Red Lion Road and Philmont Avenue, the Lower Moreland Board of Commissioners have agreed to hold a public hearing about the proposal.
Commissioners voted 5-1 Wednesday to have a public hearing March 6 to discuss the plan, which many residents oppose, as the Glenside News Globe Times Chronicle reports.
The proposed Wawa would be smaller than most and would include 12 fueling stations — even though the township’s revitalization ordinance does not allow gas stations. A text amendment will be necessary for the Wawa plans to move forward.
Leading up to the March 6, the township will conduct a traffic study of the area, which Wawa will fund.
