Vote AGAINST Circle K's downtown liquor license application

    1. Sean Sweat
    2. Petition by

      Sean Sweat

      Phoenix, United States

As a resident, property owner, and/or supporter of Downtown Phx,

I do NOT support Circle K's proposed mega gas station for the southeast corner of 7th Street & Roosevelt -- nor its liquor license application. Not only is this gigantic auto-centric development completely counter to the community's long-standing efforts to create a walkable downtown, but Circle K properties are notoriously and empirically riddled with crime, many of which are so out-of-compliance that they are eligible to have their liquor licenses revoked. [2012 ASU study]

Please come down on the side of the community, and recommend to the State Liquor Board that they REJECT Circle K's application.

Note that the following community organizations also oppose Circle K's application:
~ Garfield Organization
~ Evans Churchill Community Association
~ Roosevelt Row CDC
~ Downtown Voices Coalition
~ Phoenix Community Alliance
~ Thunderdome Neighborhood Association for Non-Auto Mobility

      Circle K already has 3 stores in the Garfield Neighborhood all selling liquor, cigarettes, pornography and junk food to the poor at high prices. They attract dangerous people and add to the problems we already have with alcohol addiction. Their stores are unmaintained, full of advertising so you cannot see into their windows and overall are a menace to society.

      So many wonderful things are happening to transform downtown Phoenix into a vibrant, cultural, and unique destination. The best land use decisions to further these efforts are to eliminate gas stations and convenience stores, not expand them.

      This area of downtown Phoenix is the only spot that is full of art culture and local thriving businesses. There are many local bars and all ages places that will suffer because of this.
