City Council denies AM/PM gas station, Iris and Olivier Street
Despite many residents attending in support of the project, the Moreno Valley City Council denied the AM/PM gas station project, located at the corner of Iris and Oliver Street. The vote was 3-2 with Baca, Gutierrez, and Cabrera voting against it and Council Members Thornton and Marquez voting for it. The Planning Commission had approved it and it was to build in commercial zoning. However, council members voting against it were concerned about how traffic would be affected and residents concerns about an increase of crime.
