The Board of Adjustment could vote Wednesday on whether to approve an application to build a Wawa convenience store and gas station on Route 34 south and Hurley Pond Road.
CJS Investments, of Wall, wants to combine portions of two adjoining parcels at the intersection to build a 4,000-square-foot Wawa convenience store with 16-pump gas station with a separate, 2,968-panel solar electricity farm behind it. The company finished up their pitch on the Wawa proposal at the April 4 meeting and is scheduled to begin testimony on the solar farm. It is possible the board could vote on the plans Wednesday.
CJS holds approvals from the township to construct two office buildings on the site, which the company has held for several years. But because of economic difficulties and because the site is ill-suited for an office environment, the company has never developed the property, CJS officials have said.
The property, betwixt Wall Stadium and Monmouth Executive Airport, suffers from noise, air traffic and sight problems that make it a poor candidate for the use of the approvals the town previously approved, CJS officials have said.
Wednesday's public meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at town hall, 2700 Allaire Road.
