Plans for a renovated state wine and spirits store will be reviewed tonight by the Newtown Borough Planning Commission. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Borough Hall.
Developer Allan Smith, who owns the current state store property on Centre Avenue, is seeking to relocate the store to a building on South State Street.
The proposal features a three-story building that would be constructed adjacent to the Sedia house at South State and Penn streets. The proposal would feature the state store on the ground level and residential units above.
The Borough Planning Commission reviewed Smith's plans in November but tabled final approval so the applicant could make some recommended changes.
According to officials, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, which leases the space from Smith, is pushing to update its stores so they are larger and more customer-friendly.
Smith told borough officials at a meeting last year that the interior of the new state store would be identical to the one that recently opened in New Hope.
