Sheetz Project Progresses in Palmer

Sheetz convenience store would be largest in Lehigh Valley now that it has received the green light to move forward in Palmer Township.

The Sheetz development is back on track.

The Palmer Township Board of Supervisors Monday night approved land development improvement agreements that will let Sheetz move forward with plans for its gas station/convenience store on Route 248.

"I'm happy to say that this has been a long road with this one, but it finally worked out," Supervisors Chairman Dave Colver said. "The township is well-protected. We get the light and improvements for Route 248 and the developer gets the project."

Township Solicitor Charles Bruno said that the deal calls for a traffic light at Route 248 and Kingston Road for the Northwood Center property.

The project has stalled for several months as the developer, Strausser Enterprises, sought permit approval from the state Department of Transportation.

Strausser has proposed building the largest Sheetz convenience store in the Lehigh Valley.

Under the approved agreement, Sheetz picks up Strausser's responsibilities for paying for the improvements with the developer as a backup, Bruno said.

It was unknown when the Sheetz project would be completed.
