Cranberry officials may approve a p by next week.
Testimony at a public hearing for the 6,558-square-foot facility, which includes a separate 1,049-square-foot car wash, concluded Thursday at the board of supervisors meeting.
During the hearing, Freedom Road resident Dan Page said he is concerned the gas station may be too close to the daycare facility on Freedom Road. He asked if an plan is in place to address an emergency involving the station's gasoline tanks.
Page also said he believes two traffic lights located on Freedom Road will not be sufficient to control traffic coming from the proposed Sheetz, which is about 300 feet from the current Sheetz building on Freedom Road.
“This is going to be a real mess,” he said.
Thursday’s hearing concluded aftermeeting. Officials postponed the hearing because of an unresolved issue between Sheetz and Dr. Mike Sradomski, who operates a dental practice next to the proposed gas station.
Sradomski had been concerned about restrictions placed on a shared driveway in an agreement with Sheetz. The driveway would connect his property to the Sheetz parking lot and would provide access to an intersection with a traffic signal on Freedom Road.
Sradomski had said he was unhappy about the possibility that his access to the Sheetz-owned driveway could be revoked if he later decides to expand his building. David Hazelet, director of development for Sheetz, said the company and Sradomski have come to an agreement.
The access will not be revoked as long as Sradomski's use of the driveway does not change, Hazelet said. The agreement does not allow for expansion of Sradomski’s dental practice.
Cranberry’s board of supervisors will consider approval of the Sheetz at its next meeting on Sept. 1.
