A hearing on a proposed Wawa near the corner of Route 88 and Jack Martin Boulevard in Brick has been rescheduled after the meeting at which it was supposed to take place was postponed due to expected foul weather.

Real estate developer Jack Morris, through his company JSM at Martin Boulevard, LLC, will be before the township Board of Adjustment March 29 to pitch a Wawa convenience store and gas station, 124 seat restaurant, bank and day care center at the site of the Laurelton Mobile Home Park. There will also be 117 parking spaces to support the businesses on the 9.4 acre plot of land. More details on the development itself can be found in a previous Shorebeat story.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the township municipal complex on Chambers Bridge Road, Wednesday, March 29.

The hearing is separate from an additional application by a developer seeking to build a Wawa in Brick. The application for that store, proposed for Route 70 and Duquesne Boulevard, will continue Wednesday, March 22.

    What deal is being made to Morris for him losing the foodtown lot project

  • J W

    Hell no. Keep the trailer park there. We need affordable housing for elderly people.

      Substandard housing …after I pay all these property taxes to Brick..some which goes to COAH to build proper low income units….Take a little time to see what this COAH and Mt Laurel business does with property tax money paid to the municipalities.

      • J W

        Shut up frank. You’re a blithering idiot that never misses a chance to moan about nonsense like this. This is affordable housing stock that comes at no cost to the taxpayer, i.e. There are no tax payer created covenants with these units. They’re counted in the affordable housing quota.

      • Frank Rizzo

        The blithering idiot is you…its a mandate by the liberal courts…. no matter what or how many units each town had it was not enough. Every town has to pay into this. We have been paying into it since the 80s..that was the whole joke about the decision. I cannot be too mad at you given your background and the lower expectations that go along with it.

    I’d like to see Royal Farms or another similar business go there…However I’d rather see WAWA than the Lakewood crowd get the land and build whatever they want under the religious exemption laws and or claim discrimination an win in court.
