No Gas Pumps on Rt 175 Corridor in Onondaga Hill

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

The town board is proposing to allow convenience stores with gas pumps to build anywhere along the 2.1 mile stretch of Rt. 175 in the Town of Onondaga from the City Line at Broad Road to Nixon Park Drive.

The board also plans to remove the 500 foot buffer that protects sensitive land uses including churches, schools, playgrounds, libraries and hospitals. Gas stations create air pollution, light and noise pollution, traffic congestion and crime. Large fuel tanks present fire and safety risks! Research shows that people's health worsens the closer they live to gas stations, up to 1,000 feet away! Gas contains benzene and other cancer causing chemicals. Higher levels of benzene and similar chemicals has been found in homes near gas stations!

The board plans to allow gas pumps to be located immediately next to residential houses, basically in residents' back yards!

Email and call Town Clerk Lisa Goodwin and the Town Board:

And tell them not to change the Master Plan and Vote No to Gas Pumps on Onondaga Hill!
