FAIR LAWN, NJ - The Fair Lawn Zoning of Board of Adjustment has scheduled a special meeting for the QuickChek application, which includes a fresh-food convenience market and a five fueling pumps at 16-00 River Road, for 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 29.
The Zoning Board will meet on Jan. 22, its regularly scheduled meeting, but the QuickChek applicant will not be in attendance.
QuickChek is the only applicant on the agenda on Jan 29, according to Zoning Board officials.
The second meeting for the application, Dec. 14, included testimony from QuickChek’s engineer, Charles Olivo, who testified about lighting and landscaping.
The application for the 1.66-acre convenience store includes five fueling pumps, and is currently a closed TD Bank. The property abuts the Board of Education bus depot on Bergen Avenue.
A gas station is not a permitted use in the zone and it is one of several variances requested.
Along with the TD Bank property, QuickChek, also known as Core Mark, is “under contract” for two residential abutting properties, which are included in the application. The three properties are in a B4 zone and a Residential I3 zone.
Recent news of ShopRite's plans to relocate from River Road to the former Pathmark site on Maple Avenue is of note because it deletes a food store from the immediate area.
