A scheduled hearing before the Board of Adjustment on an application to build a Wawa convenience store and gas station on Route 34 and Hurley Pond Road was scuttled Wednesday.
The applicant, CJS Investments of Wall, asked to have the hearing postponed to a later date, Board of Adjustment members said. A new date was unclear Wednesday night.
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.
