Race Trac is proposing a gas station / convenience store at the corner of Hwy 26 and John McCain in Colleyville. Details are:

- 24 / 7

- 16 pumps (regular and diesel)

- 3 underground storage tanks

- Gasoline sales are NOT revenue to the city. Executives have estimated tax revenue to the city between $50,000 and $96,000 per year which translates to $55 per person every time a person stops. (lottery sales are NOT revenue to the city either).

- Environmental impact

- ozone pollution (leads to respiratory problems and asthma, according to the National Institutes of Health)

- Benzene (a known carcinogen) is among the 20 most widely used chemicals in the United States and also a natural part of crude oil and gasoline (and therefore motor vehicle exhaust).

- Storage tanks could leak.

- Decreased property values. Realtor property value adjustments include a ($6,000) adjustment for retail/commercial development.

- Planned water retention pond at the back of the property within 100’ of houses and neighborhood.

- Parking is currently zoned within 100’ of houses and neighborhoods.

- Increased traffic at intersection; Race Trac’s own traffic study was flawed and incorrect. Increased traffic from food, gasoline and customers occurring 24/7.

Please join me and sign the petition to say NO to Race Trac. The addition of a large, 24/7 discounted gasoline station at the entrance to our city and within 100’ of our neighborhoods is not the vision for our city. We can do better and we should do better.
