Debate over Proposed Gas Station

Dear WAHA Members & Friends,

There is an issue afoot in the West Adams community which appears to have at LEAST two sides to it with a proposed gas station and 7-Eleven at the corner of Normandie and West Adams Boulevard.

We are posting position papers so our community will be informed  about the issues concerned.

WAHA is not endorsing a position at this time but is providing the statements below in an attempt to inform the community about the hearings and issues.  Please attend this hearing if you would like to have your voice heard and you have an opinion on this issue.
