Confirmed victory

Portage City Council and Portage Planning Commission: Do not approve a permit for a potential bomb next to a school and residential homes!

This petition made change with 160 supporters!


Great Lakes Convenience Inc has applied for a permit  to build a gas station at the former Farmers Market on Centre Street in Portage, Mi.

Please sign this petition if you do not want a gas station next to a school (Montessori Academy) and  residential homes! 

  • Explosions are a real risk. Some recent gas station explosions in the US: Cantwell, AK; Powhatton, VA, Grayson, KY, Danburry, CT.
  • Underground storage tanks can leak and pollute neighboring land.
  • Spills can occur while filling the tanks and/or vehicles. 
  • Vapors from gasoline (so called VOC's) can  pollute the environment.

Signing this petition does not mean that you are against establishing a new gas station in Portage. Nor does it mean that you are against developing the former Farmers Market. It does mean that you would like to see a gas station developed at a safe location away from children and homes!

The Planning Commission will discuss this applicaton on January 23rd (2014), 7.00 pm at City Hall. The City Council will decide later. 

Your support can make a real difference! Thank you.
