A Royal Farms has been proposed at the northwest corner of Duncan Road and Kirkwood Highway. Currently it is occupied by the Sunoco gas station. Their intention is to demolish the current gas station and the dwelling behind it to construct a 5,125 square foot convenience store with fuel pumps.
They came before the Planning Board to amend deed restrictions that would allow them to do this. The Board voted to recommend CONDITIONAL APPROVAL. Please read the recommendation by clicking HERE.
The deed restrictions WILL come before Council for final approval. It will discussed with Council, the Applicant and the public on Tuesday, April 2nd at 3:00 PM in the Council Conference Room on the 8th Floor (800 N. French Street, Wilmington, DE 19801). It will be voted on during the Council meeting ON APRIL 9th at 7:00 PM in Council Chambers on the 1st floor (800 N. French Street, Wilmington, DE 19801). We encourage you to attend to voice any support or concerns. Since the plan is considered MINOR, it will NOT come before Council for a vote to approve the plan.
