Coalition Opposing New Gas Stations
There are no action alerts at this time.
By the end of 2023, six of the nine cities in Sonoma County have enacted permanent prohibitions on new gas stations. Only Cloverdale, Healdsburg, and the City of Sonoma have yet to adopt an ordinance. Please contact us if you live in one of those cities and would like to help. For more, read our 2023 End-of-Year Report.
Active gas station proposals: There are only two active gas station proposals that were “in the pipeline” prior to the relevant ordinance being passed in Santa Rosa. They are at 43 Middle Rincon Road and 874 North Wright Road in Santa Rosa. If you would like to help us defeat those proposals, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
