Justin Putter started this petition to The City of Naperville Council members. and

We, the undersigned residents affected by the 7-Eleven gas station and convenience store at 991 Ogden Avenue, Naperville (Ogden Avenue / Royal St George Dr) do hereby oppose the proposed 24 HOUR operation and security issues at the said location.

We understand that a gas station / convenience store will be built at the said location. However, we do not want it to be open 24 HOURS a day, right on the doorstep of a quiet family friendly neighborhood. This will be out of character with its charming surrounding area. Should the change be approved, our community will be changed in many significant ways for the worse. For example:

  •  A 24 HOUR large gas station and convenience store at the proposed location will draw heavier traffic, conducive to drugs, violence and CRIME, therefore threatening the safety of our CHILDREN. 
  • We will lose our peaceful enjoyment and privacy to the ROBBERIES, noise, lighting, stress and danger.
  • A 24 HOUR operation right at the entrance of Cress Creek neighborhood loses a fundamental appeal associated with any desirable communities leading to an inevitable decline in property value and/or attraction. This will ‘Cheapen’ the neighborhood.
  • When a ROBBERY does occur, how will the homes, families and CHILDREN in the area be protected?
  • Statistics show that CRIME INCREASES BY 25% BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 10PM – 6AM for 24-HOUR businesses! Statistics are taken from 24-HOUR gas stations in the area and two 7-Eleven convenience stores in the area.
  • We also do not agree with the taking down of many healthy mature trees to make way for the large gas station /convenience store.

We strongly believe there is NO need for another 24 HOUR operation as there are currently SIX, 24 HOUR gas stations within a 1.5 mile radius along Ogden Avenue. We are a quiet CHILD FRIENDLY neighborhood and wish to remain this way!
