Wawa in Context of Newtown's Comprehensive Plan

In this podcast, Michael Horbal, a resident of Newtown, comments about the proposed Wawa convenience store and gas station at the southwestern corner of Newtown Bypass and Lower Silver Lake Road. Mr. Horbal is concerned that if proposed changes of this nature were considered, developers would start contacting landowners with similar types of properties to see if there was an opportunity to turn their property into a project. Mr. Horbal's concerns suggest that proposed plans for a Super Wawa on Newtown Bypass must be considered in context of Newtown's Comprehensive Plan Definition for the future to assure that it is consistent with the goals of that plan.
