RaceTrac Friction Not Just in North Druid Hills

The Atlanta-based gas station and market company is also facing frustrated residents in Cobb County.

RaceTrac, the popular Atlanta-based gas station and market company, isn't just facing opposition from some residents in North Druid Hills.

They're also facing frustrated residents in Cobb County, according to WSB-TV.

More than 75 people attended a meeting with representatives from the company because RaceTrac wants to build a new 18-pump station in east Cobb County.

From the story:

Residents in a nearby condo high-rise building are putting up the loudest complaints.

"Look at this. Look how dark it is, it's so peaceful," said Adriana Acevedo as she walked in front of the now closed restaurant and planned Race Trac site. "It will represent a lot of traffic out of here and a lot of lights."

More than 75 people attended a community meeting with Race Trac representatives Thursday night, peppering the officials with many questions.

Race Trac said Powers Ferry Road is a great location because of the 30,000 cars that pass by the site every day.

RaceTrac is also facing opposition from residents off Lawrenceville Highway east of North Druid Hills where the company also wants to build an 18-pump station – but they want to rezone several acres of residential land to do it.

Here are several stories on that:
