Resident in Favor of Sunset Hills Petro Mart: 'Anything Is Better Than a Vacant Building'

The proposed gas station on Lindbergh Boulevard would require an additional stoplight and a raised median separating opposing traffic lanes.

Despite hefty opposition from both nearby businesses and residents over a proposed gas station on Lindbergh Boulevard--including a petition of 174 signatures from Sunset Hills residents --not everyone thinks it's such a bad idea.

Sunset Hills resident Kathie Berkel shares her support for a new Petro Mart in an editorial to Call Newspapers.

"Change and growth are going to happen. We can't change that," she writes.

Land West #7 hopes to demolish the former Bob Evans, off Interstate 44, to open a Petro Mart. Their request would mean several cosmetic changes to the Lindbergh roadway, including a raised median between north- and south-running lanes, and a new traffic signal at Lindbergh and Monica.

Sunset Hills aldermen delayed a vote on the project at their Sept. 11 meeting.
