Despite the local chatter about a possible Super Wawa at Baltimore Avenue and Route 252 in Media Borough, formal plans have yet to be presented to the Borough's Planning Commission.
However, a Concept Plan has been presented to both the Planning Commission and Borough Council.
Media Real Estate was expected to present its application for the Super Wawa at the October Planning Commission meeting, however, asked to be withdrawn from the agenda and placed on the Nov. 7 meeting agenda, according to the Delaware County Daily Times.
The Super Wawa is proposed at the vacant lot bordered by State Street, Providence Road and Baltimore Avenue and would include a retail store, 72 parking spaces and a gas station at the 1.73 acre lot.
The applicant would need Media Borough Council approval to purchase and alter Baker Street, which runs through the proposed Wawa and would need to be altered in order for the project to move forward. Wawa is proposing to turn Baker Street at a 90 degree angle, at the end of a row of houses, to run behind the proposed Wawa and on to State Street.
The majority of Media Borough Council members have said they are against Wawa's concept plan.
The planning commission will hear the applicant at 7:30 p.m. at the Wednesday, Nov. 7 meeting (moved due to Election Day).
