Our family is in favor of the Danville and San Ramon cities approving a Costco gas station.

I love getting gas at Costco stations...but this location is a bad one for a number of reason, not the least of which is the air quality that would suffer for the nearby residents (I'm one of them), and the traffic nightmare that would be created. It's a bad use of that land.

I adamantly oppose the planned building of Costco’s 32 pump gas station that will affect the health and safety of residents in both Danville and San Ramon due to typical wind paths that would carry toxic gas emissions from gasoline tanker trucks and idling cars. Additionally, imagine the increased magnitude of traffic, congestion, and potential accidents that would affect us all, including those who work at Bishop Ranch Business Park located in San Ramon. People’s health and lives are more important than an increase in profits and memberships for Costco Corporation located in Washington State, the second largest retailer in the world. Between San Ramon and Danville, we already have more than enough gas stations owned by small business folks; we do not need a megastation that would kill their small stations. Additionally, please think about the other small businesses surrounding said property, e.g. outdoor dining, coffee shops, children’s tutoring service, nail and hair salons, as well as our kids who play in parks that would be adversely affected. Costco’s megastation plan is certainly not a good use of commercial property. Thank you for your kind consideration.

Awful idea of a Costco gas station. The location can’t handle that kind of traffic and we have at least 6 gas Stations close by. We don’t need this: give people serviced they need. Gas stations on every corner is ridiculous
