Wawa Decision Could Come Wednesday

Board of Adjustment could take vote on Route 34 application

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 with a separate, 2,968-panel solar electricity farm behind it. The company finished up their pitch on the Wawa proposal at the 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.

We do not need a Wawa it is not needed at all. We have a beautiful town lets keep it this way. Why do we need to set up gasoline service stations all up and down the roads of the town it is already like that. The more of these stations you put up the more abandoned gas stations (eye sores) up and down our highways for example the station on rt 34 south little north of the current wawa look at what that caused a shut down abandoned site we do not need it.

Jonathon, I agree why with your thought. Why let our town that looks 100 times better then other places go down to that. We have way to many gasoline stores in our area to begin with. I know our board will never let anything like that happen which would ruin our town image. Go wall! Keep the big boys out of town we have no need for them

good points... lets see what the officials have to say. all i know is that these things happen our traffic and circulation is going to get worse then it already is, the roads are meant for town development but it looks like those companies want to turn it into a city setting
