Note to Costco:

Just put the Gas Station in your current parking lot in Danville, and put additional parking across the street in San Ramon. Since the property across the street is mostly a parking lot already, no one has any legal cause of action. Looking forward to purchasing gasoline from your new station wherever you end up locating it.

Great job! Stop the over-development of San Ramon. When was the last time there was an issue with waiting in line for gas? Never! Like San Ramon needs 32 more gas pumps when environmentally we are supposed to be moving in the opposite direction?? Why not build a park? The kids don’t have enough space for all their sports activities. Now that would enhance San Ramon-not more commercial and high density projects. Ugh.

The city should be taking a longer term view on transportation. There's no reason to be building additional gas stations when we should be pushing for non-carbon based transportation options. There are plenty of gas stations to serve the area. I fully support this lawsuit.

The competition is going to drive out the corporate giants that have a stranglehold on gas prices in San Ramon for decades. I am all for competition!! Beef up SRPD to keep undesirable elements from other parts of the bay area coming into San Ramon. Use the extra tax revenue to improve our neighborhoods and streets. Pay for enhanced surveillance equipment such as license plate readers and a crime and gang prevention unit in SRPD. Pay our teachers more. Improve school safety
