|Will One Be Coming To Media?|
What's at Stake?
Tonight's meeting will set the stage for the final vote expected on Oct 19th during the monthly borough council meeting. Both Media's planning commission and the Media Business Authority have come out in favor of this project. Many in the community have shown support for this effort, but have cited traffic as a concern.
By the Numbers:
- Wawa to will invest more than $5 million in the building and site.
- This investment will provide over $1 million in local contractor fees, over $250,000 in worker fees and over $25,000 in landscaping fees.
- A new store would increase tax revenue to the borough and on average create 35 new jobs.
No other viable alternatives have been proposed for this site after the Media Inn was razed almost two years ago.
