Coalition Opposing New Gas Stations
Help STOP the Novato Costco! Sign the PETITION.
The Novato City Council votes on March 9. Add your voice! Costco wants to build what will be the largest gas station in Novato with 14 stations for a total of 28 gasoline dispensers in a location where there are over ten operating stations within a five mile radius. The city council adopted a climate emergency resolution just four months ago. A climate crisis is NOT the time to be expanding fossil fuel infrastructure!
Congratulations and THANK YOU Petaluma
First city in the U.S. to prohibit new gas stations?
Our mission is to stop the construction of new gas stations in Sonoma County and beyond.
CONGAS stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and all who oppose racism and are fighting police brutality. Read more about the connection between gasoline use and social injustice here.

Thanks to everyone who helped stop the gas station proposal at Highway 12 & Llano Road! Our June 18, 2020 action was covered in the Press Democrat and it was a big contributor to the developer’s decision to withdraw the proposal on July 2, 2020. We express gratitude to the developer for responding to the voice of the community.

There are currently three gas station proposals in Sonoma County. In the midst of a global climate crisis with local impacts already being felt, this is not a wise investment.
