Without the gas station, there is no gasoline from north of University Village all the way to Madison Avenue. Plus there's often a mechanic available, the only one for many, many miles in any direction. The Montlake grocery is similarly the only grocery store for the neighborhood. The nearest others are in the University Village or on 15th Ave, blocks south of Aloha. Gasoline and basic groceries keep the Montlake, Arboretum and North Capitol Hill areas from being deserts. To destroy these community resources for a temporary construction project not serving these communities inflicts a lasting change that harms our neighborhoods.

Please keep the grocery store and the gas station! We need it! It would create a huge void of services! Thank you, Stacia M Sander
