Speedway expected to file plan with Penn commission in January
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.
