Too bad. The old shell station doesn't get much business today primarily due to pricing. I live around the corner and i never buy gas there. Neither do any neighbors i know. Its too bad our city council only judges the pictures and site map of project and then jumps in with both feet. I wish before i vote i could ascertain the intelligence before i select. If they really had their hands on the pulse, they would realize most are waiting for Costco gas, not another overpriced Shell.

Like the city council would dare do anything to upset Shell oil and MS and his band of paid for petitioners. Thanks to JT for bringing up that gaudy, bright yellow and red canopy, we see what’s important with the city council!! We don’t need another car wash let alone liquor sales on that prime corner. Who in this town keeps buying that overpriced gas??

Oh goody...a new venue for overpriced gas and an overpriced 7-11 (that attracts all the late night druggies) while we wait for the Costco to be built. What is wrong with you people on the planning commission and the city council???
