There is a proposal to construct a gas station, convenience mart, and fast food restaurant with a drive thru at the entrance to the Wingate subdivision, on the corner of Green Mount Road and Wingate Blvd. This is the same entrance used by busses and parents for Wingate Elementary School. Our main concerns if this proposal passes are the safety of our children at the school, and the decline in property values in not only Wingate and Green Mount Manor, but all homes that feed into Wingate Elementary School. Air, land, and water pollution is also a concern. This proposal will create additional and unwanted foot traffic in the surrounding neighborhoods, and would add to vehicle traffic on an already congested road. Gas stations and convenience stores are often the target of criminal activity. Do we want to put our children and neighborhoods at risk? Please help us voice our opposition to this proposal. The deadline to sign the petition is March 23, 2016. Thank you for your support!
