ABERDEEN, MD — Plans for a new Royal Farms convenience store and carwash have been approved here, an exploreharford.com story said.

The March 14 story said the site will cover 1.74 acres and will go up in place of a former Knights Inn Hotel.

Public Works Director Matt Lapinsky said they’re eager to see the new business open.

“My first year, we wrestled with the owner to get this place torn down so we could get something [good] put up there. We finally got the thing torn down, which I thought was a great opportunity, a great occasion in time. …It’s really kind of nice to see this thing moving forward, and it is our hope that this thing keeps moving forward with great speed.”

The designs for the site will go with the look of the village and have stonework and a Tudor-looking style. Also, there will be stonework around the gas pumps.

Initially, an architectural review team had concerns with the pending signage and buffers and called for more trees to go up before the plans were approved.
