Of course, it wouldn’t be Scottsdale if someone didn’t protest.

Circle K is trying to get the permits to build a gas station and convenience store on the southwest corner of Bell Road and Thompson Peak Parkway.

McDowell Mountain Ranch resident Myryka Nunya said a gas station at that location will spoil the pristine nature of the neighborhood.

” We have tried to preserve the look and feel of the desert and seeks some separation from the city,” Ms. Nunya said. ” Adding a cheap gas station to the corner will only turn this quiet, comforting area into a bustling commerce corner filled with loiterers and noise.”
