With October now here, there will be two very important borough meetings coming up that will decide the future of the proposed Wawa at Providence and Baltimore Ave.
Public comment and questions will be held Thursday, October 3rd at Borough Hall (6pm). This meeting will allow statements by the developers and comments for or against from the community. On October 17th, during the regular council meeting, the vote will be cast by borough council, as to whether this project will proceed or not.
As it stands now, the developers and their partners have presented 13 times in 19 months to Media Borough. Both the Media Business Authority and borough Planning Commission support this project which will be the anchor property to the gateway of Media. Public opinion seems to strongly favor this development, as Wawa continues to work towards a unique experience for Media. Back in March, they proposed a one of a kind store that was specifically designed for Media,Pa.
Odds are this proposal will be denied by Media Borough Council, however, if you are for this project, it's imperative that you attend these two meetings to voice your opinion.
Over the next few months people will come to this blog wondering what has happened to the proposed Media Wawa. October will be your chance to no longer wonder, but allow for the community to take part in this very big project. And it will come down to just that!
