The Township of North Brunswick held three Zoning Board meetings regarding a proposed expansion of the existing Wawa at the intersection of Route 27 and Cozzens Lane which would include eight gas pumps along with a new Wawa convenience store building.
These meetings were packed with residents against the proposal for various reasons, including but not limited to environmental hazards, traffic accidents, etc., and most importantly, a gas station adjacent to the residential block.
The Zoning Board should not only be responsible but responsive to the residents’ concerns.
We voted for our mayor and council members, and they appointed the Zoning Board, who should be responsive to us. Please start listening to us on Sept. 19 by voting “nor” to the Wawa gas station.
