Planning Board to Discuss ShopRite Tonight

The board may take "formal action" at this special meeting.

The Wyckoff Planning Board is holding a special meeting tonight to hear continuing testimony about Inserra Supermarkets' application to build a ShopRite at the site of the old A&P.

If approved, Inserra Supermarkets would demolish the A&P building and build a new 62,174-square-foot store on the site. The owners of the neighboring Stop & Shop and Boulder Run have each hired attorneys to object to the plan, which has resulted in considerable legal entanglement.

, Inserra's operations expert Joseph Pagano explained what the average day at the store would be like. According to Pagano, the store would be open from 7 a.m. to midnight seven days a week and have as many as 80 employees working during peak hours. About five tractor trailers and 40 smaller vendor trucks would make deliveries to the store.

Pagano also answered questions from neighbors about traffic, noise and light pollution concerns.

Tonight's topics may include drainage calculations, landscaping plans, an updated survey. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in Memorial Town Hall.
