From a comment:
Two important public hearings for the proposed ReStore ‘N Station are coming up and it is critical that people attend these meetings if they are concerned about the size and character of a huge gas station/truck stop proposed for Route 250 West. If approved, this would be the second largest gas station in the County, serving both cars and semi trucks Interstate 64.
Please take some time out of your schedule to attend these meetings. It is crucial that the County know that citizens are paying attention to their decisions regarding this project. Here are two hearings where your attendance is needed to:
· Show your support for the adjoining neighborhood’s attempt to scale back the size and use of the project;
· Note your concern about a large project like this proposed to be built near three schools on Scenic Route 250.
1) Tuesday, June 1 at 2 p.m. for a Board of Zonings Appeals (BZA) Hearing and
2) Tuesday, June 8 at 6 p.m. for a Planning Commission Public Hearing
Don’t feel like you need to speak at these meetings, just showing up is important! this could be your neighborhood and you would certainly want other Albemarle County citizens to stand up for you. You also might have children going to one of the nearby three schools and are interested in showing support for scaling back the size of the project.

At the very least, couldn’t they come up with a better name than “Restore N Station”?
