Bart Blatstein drops request for Delaware River waterfront Wawa with gas pumps - for now

Blatstein’s plan for a big Wawa with gas pumps at the Tasker Street and South Columbus Boulevard site — part of a large tract where a Foxwoods casino once had been planned — was overwhelmingly rejected by community members at a meeting of the Pennsport Civic Association neighborhood group in March.

    Bart Blatstein drops request for Delaware River waterfront Wawa with gas pumps - for now
    Blatstein pulled the application last week for a variance from zoning rules barring gas pumps along central Philadelphia's Delaware River waterfront to mull other options with nearby neighbors who oppose the plan. - Jacob Adelman, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News
