Next Steps for Franklin County Wawa

The Borough of Chambersburg has received a Land Development Plan proposing the construction of a new Wawa food market and gas station at 1071 Wayne Avenue. The proposed Wawa will cover 5,330 square feet and include 41 parking spaces, along with canopy areas to cover all six gas pumps.

The plan will require the demolition of an existing building, currently occupied by Sakura Japanese restaurant, who is open and operating at this time.

The Zoning Hearing Board approved the variances for off-street parking design standards, dumpster enclosure location, and business identification signs on January 3, 2023.

The Land Development Plan will be presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission on April 4 at 7 p.m. If the Planning and Zoning Commission recommends the proposed plan to Town Council, then the Town Council will hear the presentation on Monday, April 10.

It is important to note that if recommended to Town Council, they will have 90 days from April 4 to take action on the plan.

I have been what I like to call a television aficionado for many, many decades. I enjoy a good evening spent in front of the old boob tube and have since I was young.
