7-Eleven application carried, again

February 17, 2011

Sema Food Mart will have to wait until at least March before its testimony before the Wall Township Board of Adjustment, seeking permission to change an existing building on Highway 35 to a 7-Eleven, is complete.

The application was carried during last night’s meeting of the board, after nearly two and one-half hours of testimony from a site engineer, traffic engineer and planner.

Testimony focused heavily on the traffic on the site, located on the corner of Highway 35 and Allaire Road. Currently, a Gulf gas station and a vacant building is located there — if the application were approved, gas service from Gulf pumps would remain, and the building would become a 7-Eleven convenience store.

When the application is again heard on March 2, Mark Aikins — attorney for an opposing party, the site’s next-door neighbor, Danskin Insurance Agency — said he will present testimony from two experts.

In other meeting news, no testimony was heard regarding T-Mobile Northeast’s application to construct a cell tower at 3304 Belmar Boulevard. The application was carried to the board’s May 4 meeting.
