Cranberry supervisors to vote on grocery story plan

Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, 5:33 p.m.
 

A project that would create a retail development and possibly a grocery store that would serve residents of northern Cranberry and southern Jackson is going before Cranberry supervisors for approval.

A vote is expected within a few weeks.

Cranberry's planning advisory commission last week recommended approval of preliminary land development and conditional use for the project.

“Having a grocery store a little north — that serves a great purpose,” said Cranberry community development Director Ron Henshaw.

“It would help alleviate some traffic. I think that's a great thing.”

Developer Dominic Gigliotti doesn't have a tenant lined up for the 68,000-square-foot grocery store at the Marketplace at Cranberry development, proposed for a 20-acre site along Route 19 at North Boundary Road.

Jackson Manager Chris Rearick said that with a growing population in Jackson, including approval of 245 single-family detached homes in the past year, a grocery store serving southern township residents would be welcomed.

About 60 of those homes would be constructed by the end of the year, he said.
