We don’t cover Flourtown all that much as we consider it just outside MoreThanTheCurve.com’s coverage area. This story, of course, grabbed our interest. A developer, The Verrichia Company, is proposing to develop a Wawa with gas pumps at the corner of Bethlehem Pike and Sunnybrook Road in Flourtown (Whitemarsh Township). If you aren’t super familiar with Flourtown, but have driven through it a few times, this location is across the street from Planet Fitness. You can take a look at the proposal on Verrichia’s website.
Verrichia is holding a non-official public meeting on Wednesday, August 24th at 6:00 p.m. at the William Jeanes Memorial Library in Lafayette Hill. A similar meeting was held back in October of 2010 when a developer, different that Verrichia, and Wawa announced plans to propose a Wawa with gas pumps at 12th and Fayette in Conshohocken. There was at least a couple hundred people at that meeting back in 2010. It will be interesting to see if there is as much interest in Flourtown.
Neighbors seem to be getting organized. The below letter was posted to the Whitemarsh Area Community Network Facebook group:
