No Gas Station SE Bend-Say YES to Neighborhoods

Say YES to a convenience commercial (CC) development that helps our neighborhood thrive!
Let’s be smart about long-term planning and build for the future. SE Bend Neighbors for Responsible Development needs your help!
A gas station @ Brosterhous & Murphy is…
Not the type of commercial development we want.
SE Bend needs a gathering place. Food trucks, small grocery, coffee shop and the like will be welcomed & supported.
A gas station is not compatible with the shopping and service needs of nearby residents.
Not safe for our kids.
A gas station would bring too much traffic, putting our kids in harms way especially as they walk/bike to school.
Convenience stores/gas stations are popular targets for crime and loitering.
The gas station and its unhealthy fumes, tanks & refilling trucks will be too close to homes, schools & parks.
Not needed.
There are 8 other gas stations on the way to where we want to go and they all have capacity for more customers.
There is a place for gas stations in SE Bend and it’s called 3rd Street.
A congestion creator.
Increased traffic risks slowing emergency vehicles making their way from the fire station on Country Club.
Entering/exiting the gas station will create congestion at the roundabout and in adjacent neighborhoods.
Awkward lot shape will create congestion within the property if vehicle oriented & dependent uses are permitted.
NO gas pumps NO drive throughs!
NO vehicle-dependent or vehicle-oriented uses!
NO Conditional Use Permit!
Please contribute to:
- help build awareness by creating and purchasing yard signs, banners, and other visual media
-to enlist experts to study the traffic flow and environmental issues associated with a traffic intensive business in two areas on this SE Bend lot at Brosterhous and Murphy Road
-to hire legal representation, if needed
