Wawa developer hasn’t contacted Borough of Conshohocken since court ruling

On October 25th, the Conshohocken Business and Professional Women Association held a forum for candidates running for office in the Borough of Conshohocken and the local magisterial court.

Some news was made. During the question and answer period, a question was asked on the status of the Wawa.

In August of 2021, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, the state’s second-highest court, issued an opinion that upheld Conshohocken’s Zoning Hearing Board’s determination that Conshohocken’s Borough Council committed spot zoning when passing an ordinance that would have allowed for a Wawa with gas pumps to be built along the 1100 block of Fayette Street.

Incumbent candidate Kathleen Kingsley (Ward 5, D), who wasn’t on the borough council when the ordinance was passed, and Anita Barton (Ward 4, D) who voted against the ordinance, shared that since the court ruling, the developer, Provco-Pineville, has not been in contact with the borough.

Neither the borough nor Provco-Pineville appealed the Commonwealth Court’s decision.
