Global Power Up Day! Join 350Marin's and 350Bay Area's Climate Action March/Rally in Novato on Saturday from 2 - 4 pm! Let Costco and Novato City Know: Urgent Times to End the Area of Fossil Fuels. In April 2020, Costco Wholesale proposed to add a gas station adjacent to the existing Costco Wholesale store located in the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center. This is Costco’s second attempt to build a mega gas station next to its store. If approved and built, it would become the largest gas station in Marin County in 2024. The project includes the construction of an approximately 10,000-square-foot canopy that will cover 14 fuel dispensers that accommodate 28 fueling positions. Additionally, it comprises 3 x 40,000-gallon gasoline underground storage tanks (UST) and 1x 1,500-gallon additive UST. This project is entirely incompatible with the Climate Emergency Crisis we are in. It is urgent time to end burning fossil fuels for transportation and all other energy consumption and switch to clean electric energy instead. Tell Costco to become part of the Solution, not the Problem! Tell Novato City: No Mega Gas Station. Don't add Fuel to the Fire. Let's march together. I can't wait to see you there! We provide some signs; however, bringing your own is very welcome.
