Speedway expected to file plan with Penn commission in January

| Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Representatives of Speedway are expected to present a site plan for a proposed gas station along Route 130 to the Penn Township Planning and Zoning Commission next month.

Commission members already are reviewing a request by property owner TCMZT Realty Group to subdivide a 4-acre parcel to create a 2-acre lot just east of Pleasant Valley Road for the Midwestern gas chain.

The township's solicitor and engineer and the Westmoreland County Planning Department also are reviewing the subdivision request, Penn Township community-development director Dallas Leonard said. A site plan is expected to be on the commission's Jan. 7 agenda, he said.

TCMZT — which stands for the initials of the last names of the five investors — owns commercially zoned property on the north side of Route 130 near the Rite Aid drug store. The group also has 14 acres for sale behind the property along the highway.

Speedway also is trying to build new stations in Unity Township, New Stanton, Delmont and Oakmont.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
