If this is a meeting to inform the community of the proposed building of a Wawa in Willow Grove why is it being held at the VFW and why does it cost in order to hear what is being proposed?

Why is the meeting being held during the day when most people work?

Perhaps just a glimpse into the forethought and wisdom of those in the Township that are proposing this project. We could use a WAWA but NOT at this location. This is our town center and intended for mixed-use development. Development that will bring folks back to our town and help it prosper. This proposed use will only add to the "drive through" type town that Willow Grove has become. Believe it or not, Willow Grove was once known as a "Resort Town". A beautiful and thriving destination spot for many from around the country. Now, just a drive through area to another location. Very disappointing. Please come out to the Public Hearing on Monday, November 13th at 7PM in the Council Rm at the Upper Moreland Township Bldg. Let your voices be known on this important issue.

Correction: Public Hearing for proposed WAWA is TUESDAY, November 13 at 7PM. Thank you.
