Concord OKs zoning change pertaining to Wegman’s

A Wegman’s supermarket is one bureaucratic step closer to becoming a reality in Concord Township. Major steps are still ahead, though.

Supervisors voted June 4 to approve a text amendment and new map for a Loop Road Overlay District that would allow for a Wegman’s in the area of Applied Card Way, Route 1 and Route 202.

That’s still a long way off, however. Before the project can even start, the applicant must go through a conditional use hearing and the normal land development process with the Concord Planning Commission. Those proceedings could get started in September.

Other business

Supervisors held a brief conditional use hearing for Johnny’s Wood Oven Pizzeria for the purpose of determining whether the restaurant should be approved for outdoor seating.

The restaurant is located at 95 Wilmington-West Chester Pike — Route 202 — where Cheeseburger-Cheeseburger used to be.

Owner John McElderry said the 715 square foot outdoor seating area would be in the front of the building. During testimony he said he would agree to using the area from April to October only, close the area at 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 during the rest of the week. He also agreed not to have any outdoor music, entertainment or an outside bar. The pizzeria is BYO only.

A July 11 decision is anticipated.
