Blatstein’s Wawa proposal ignores pedestrian-friendly goals along Delaware waterfront

Will the city stand up to Blatstein? Technically, his gas station proposal should be a nonstarter, because autocentric uses are prohibited by the waterfront overlay. But the zoning board, which is scheduled to review the project in January, has been known to overlook the overlay’s requirements. Joseph A. Forkin, who runs the Delaware River Waterfront Corp., told me he intends to personally testify against the proposal.
