What Should Go Here: Moore Chevrolet

The proposed Wawa on 11th Ave and Fayette Street in Conshohocken has been in the news – but what do YOU think should go there?

 

Patch has a nation-wide “Visions for Vacancies” column, in which residents can weigh in on what they think should fill vacant commercial spots in town.

I can’t think of a better “What Should Go Here” post than the Moore Chevrolet, located at 11th Ave and Fayette Street – the property at the heart of the Conshohocken Wawa debate.

While Wawa says that the 1.45 acre lot is a difficult property to develop due to its location next to a cemetery and in front of a baseball stadium, and the company will keep the area "walkable;" the anti-Wawa faction says that a convenience store with gas does does not fit into the revitalization plan of Conshohocken.

Wawa debate aside - what do you think should go here?

That's actually a great idea

How about a parking lot for the A and B fields? Have you ever tried to find a parking spot for the Conshy Steelers or Conshy Bears games?

Well said, Kelly! The biggest problem (as Matt pointed out) is that you can have 50 people chime in and have 50 different ideas for what goes in there. Ultimately, whomever buys the land should be the one to decide it's use, as long as it fits the zoning/code requirements for the borough. The debate of "to Wawa or not to Wawa" is ludicrous. Wawa brings both jobs and tax revenue to the borough.

just a thought...wouldn't a WAWA thrive in the community?

It makes me laugh that all of the suggestions that have been put on this thread have been for businesses that would cause traffic problems at 11th and Fayette if they were the alternative to the Wawa plan. Chickie and Petes...always crowded. Trader Joes...the amount of petroulli wafting from the parking lot would kill the grass in the A field.
