The Wawa of Perry Hall held its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, March 3. The store is located at the intersection of Belair Road and Honeygo Boulevard near the Perry Hall Library. Councilman David Marks was one of the dignitaries at the event.
“The corner of Belair Road and Honeygo Boulevard was zoned for commercial development in 2000. A shopping center was approved two years before my election. Our office persuaded the developer to reject uses that would be more appropriate elsewhere – Lidl located to the Mars supermarket site instead, for example. Surrounding neighborhoods were actively engaged as plans for Wawa moved forward,” Marks explained.
“The Wawa offers more choice for motorists and employs local residents – and is already giving back to the community. Today, the store made a donation to Gunpowder Elementary as it recognized Kirsten Roller for her work on the playground project.”
