After more than 2 years, the ShopRite application now before the Wyckoff Planning Board appears to be approaching its conclusion.
The fate of a proposed 62,000 square-foot supermarket could be decided at a special meeting scheduled for Monday, Nov. 26, at 7 p.m. if Chairman Richard Bonsignore puts the application up for a vote as is expected.
The public has twice been given the opportunity to speak up regarding the project, and has been generally favorable to the application. A common concern amongst commentors, however, has been over a potential increase in traffic in the township should the supermarket get built.
The Inserra application is opposed by two law teams: Price, Meese, Shulman & D'Arminio representing Stop & Shop and Robert J. Inglima, Jr., who represents Munico Associates and Wyckoff Residential — effectively the interests of Hekemian and Boulder Run.
The firms arguing in support of the application are Wells, Jaworski & Liebman, and Beattie Padovano — who represent, respectively, the applicant and the owner of the now-vacant property at Greenwood and Wyckoff avenues.
