Court declines to block convenience store

Efforts to build a Sheetz convenience store on commercial real estate at the intersection of Pennsylvania state Routes 144 and 45 moved forward after a Superior Court ruling declined to block it construction.

The property is currently owned by real estate developer Bob Poole jointly with the Old Fort Road Limited Partnership.

University to use eminent domain for medical school use

Homeowners and other property owners in the Philadelphia suburb of Camden are facing the possibility that Rowan University may soon use eminent domain to acquire their land for purposes associated with the needs of its relatively new Cooper Medical School. For approximately the last 11 months, the university has been locked in discussions with those who hold the titles to 22 parcels of land a block away from the school. Those negotiations have borne some fruit, culminating with the school's contractual purchase of five homes in the vicinity.
