FAIR LAWN – With no quorum, the Zoning Board of Adjustment carried the QuickChek application to its Jan. 22 meeting, much to the dismay of the public.

Chairman Richard Seibel’s announcement of the lack of a quorum on Dec. 18 was met with a large sigh from the crowd of about 20 people.

“There are four here, two sick and two recusing themselves,” Seibel said.

QuickChek’s attorney, Andrew Del Vecchio, requested a special meeting in addition to the Jan. 22 date.

“We’ll work on a special meeting date,” Seibel said.

The Dec. 18 non-meeting follows the Dec. 14 special meeting in which QuickChek’s engineer, Charles Olivo, testified about lighting and landscaping.

The 5,757-sq.-foot QuickChek building will sit on a 1.66-acre lot and include five gas pumps at 16-00 River Road, currently a closed TD Bank. The property abuts the Board of Education bus depot on Bergen Avenue.

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. A gas station is not a permitted use in the zone and it is one of several variances requested.
