In Effort to Promote Use of Electric Vehicles, Colorado City Caps Number of Gas Stations
March 24, 2023 | Colorado
A City Council in suburban Denver has voted in favor of banning the construction of new gas stations to combat climate change.
The Louisville City Council voted unanimously Tuesday in support of a 2022 ordinance that would cap the number of gas stations allowed in the Colorado city, about 30 miles north of Denver.
The ordinance caps the number of stations to six and includes only one exception – if a retail center such as Sam’s Club or Costco builds a store of 80,000 or more square feet that would include a gas station. (Excerpt from Just the News.)
