Sam's Club will be coming to Silver Spring Township in the near future.

The Silver Spring Township board of commissioners voted in favor of the plan at their Wednesday board meeting. Nathan Spade, vice-chairman of the board, was absent at the time of the vote. Township Manager Theresa Eberly said the applicants, Sam’s Club, needs to submit a building permit to the township before construction can begin. John Hornick, a Sam’s Club representative, declined to comment on when construction was expected to start.

The 136,367-square-foot store will be built at the site of the former Lowe’s store in the Silver Spring Commons shopping plaza. The Lowe’s will be demolished as part of the project, and a new building will be constructed for the Sam’s Club. A fuel center will also be built to the south of the store. There will be 546 parking spots for the new store.

Hornick walked the board through the final land development plan, which had not changed since the preliminary approval. Changes were made to the traffic layout for the fuel station, which were brought before township planning commission on May 2. A subdivision line was also added to the plan.

“Originally, the parties, Sam’s Club and the shopping center owner, were contemplating a ground lease to Sam’s Club for the store and the parking lot,” said Tina Makoulian, a Sam’s Club Representative. “Their deal changed a little over the last few months, and now Sam’s wants to own its parcel like Walmart does, and the shopping center owner is agreeable to that.”

That subdivision line resulted in one additional waiver request since the subdivision line was not in the preliminary plan.

The supervisors asked if the subdivision line would mean customers from other stores would be unable to park in the Sam’s Club parking lot. Makoulian said that would not be the case, and customers from all the stores in the shopping plaza would still be able to park in any available spot as part of a reciprocal easement agreement.
