  1. Janet P says:

    That is already a crazy intersection. Why would you put a store and gas station there? City planners are not thinking this one through!

  2. Stacie Bonar says:

    OMG – the City Council members have lost their minds with housing. What is wrong with them?!?

    • Peter Hill says:

      This is not housing. It’s a gas station.

    • Jay says:

      If you haven’t noticed lately, that the city of Vista does not care about its residence / long time residents or affordable housing …, NOT houses that are $500k + thats not reasonable nor affordable in this town … the city of Vista is only interested in corporate $$$ & higher city sales tax …☹☹

  3. Bill Vandling says:

    Very hard to get in and out of there as it is. Adding a heavy traffic business doesn’t make any sense.

    • Peter Hill says:

      Agreed, more drivers going straight from Civic Center drive or left from northbound East Vista way into Hillside would slow traffic down at that set of lights. Coming southbound on East Vista way would be no problem. Perhaps because there are no gas stations on the southbound direction it would decrease traffic crossing over to the Barnicles gas station further to the north.

  4. PK says:

    There are a plethora of gas stations, 7-11’s, and mini markets on East Vista already. Adding another is completely unnecessary. Not only that, driving into and out of Hillside Terrace at East Vista is difficult enough, a gas station/mini-mart would create an infinitely worse traffic snarl. JUST SAY NO.

  5. Lawren J says:

    Put in EV charging stations. Gas stations and fossil fuels are on their way out.

  6. David P says:

    Would be a terrible decision, during heavy traffic hours that intersection is already very dangerous and congested.

  7. Julie a Galvin barnicle says:

    This is absolutely ridiculous! It’s such a dangerously, busy intersection. I thought Vista was interested in the safety of out community. Please come to the meeting and have your voice heard.

  8. J.Hernandez says:

    I don’t think is a good idea. City of vista has added more stop lights and mediums along vista way that slows down traffic really bad. And all new home towns and apartments that are building around vista traffic it’s getting far worse. I think adding another gas station will be a bad decision. Just thinking ahead exiting out of vista way will be a nightmare because that intersection it’s really busy at all times and the last thing we need it’s another gas station that will slow down traffic
