Tractor supply rendering

An Alabama-based development firm's application to build a Tractor Supply store on a six-acre wooded lot on the east side of Route 73 in Berlin Township goes before the Planning and Zoning Board next Tuesday.

The site plan and use variance application from HSC Berlin LLC is for the property that is bounded by Route 73 and Jackson and Hopewell Roads. HSC Berlin, a unit of development firm Hix Snedeker Companies of Daphne, Alabama, proposes the Tractor Supply outlet on land owned by Jackson Point LLC/Pagliuso of Stokes Road in Medford, according to state property records.

Tractor Supply — a retailer of home improvement, agriculture, lawn and garden and animal-care products — has 10 stores in New Jersey including Southampton, Hammonton and Sicklerville, according to its website. A developer had proposed a Tractor Supply and a Wawa near Route 73 and Kresson Road, but that was rejected by Voorhees in 2018.

The proposed store in Berlin would be almost totally surrounded by landscaping buffers and in an area of commercial developments and open land, according to the developer's plans. Entrances and exits would be on Route 73 and Hopewell Road. The building would total 19,097 square feet with 77 total parking spaces.
