City of San Jose, Planning Building & Code Enforcement - Attn: Jeff Roche - Ref: PDC 13 - 032:
There is a creek running directly behind the proposed site. Any runoff from the Gas Station however minimal would result in contamination of ground water that we all depend on.
The air around gas stations have been found to have significantly higher levels of carcinogens such as Benzene that put current and future generations at higher risk for various cancers.
Many of us have been drawn to the Silver Creek area and paid a premium primarily for the peace and tranquility of this area. Having a gas station in the middle of this area would result in higher levels of noise and pollution and make this a less desirable area for current and future residents.
Having a gas station would increase the traffic in this area causing congestion especially during school hours as there are two elementary schools located very close to the proposed site.
There are several species of birds and animals that make their home in the green area directly behind the proposed site. The proposed site will adversely impact their current habitat.
Given these and several other factors we the residents of the Silver Creek Valley communities strongly oppose the idea of a gas station and/or a car wash in the proposed Canyon Creek Plaza site.
