Costco: Don't put your mega gas station close to our homes, schools or playgrounds!

    1. Petition by

      The Stop Costco Gas Coalition

Costco Wholesale applied for permission to build a mega gas station VERY close to the Kensington Heights neighborhood. Costco is supported by Westfield Group and Montgomery County government. Mega gas stations, if sited too close to homes, schools, and outdoor recreation facilities, expose people to unacceptable health risks. They also have negative impacts on quality of life because of increased air pollution, noise, traffic congestion, and potential degradation of ground water quality. Mega gas stations are a growing trend that should concern every neighborhood. More info is at www.stopcostcogas.org

      Gas stations don't belong in shopping malls.

      I live close to and downslope from the proposed station. I am worried about air pollution from the site settling in the neighborhood.

      Wheaton's quality of life (and air quality) has already been severely been degraded by the continued deforestation allowed by the MoCo Council, the Public Service Commission, as well as the lack of enforcement of housing codes - "boarding houses." This needs to stop.

      This mega gas station poses a health threat to the nearby community and school.
