Residents sign protest against convenience store

A group of residents in Ponca City’s Selvy addition have signed a protest and presented it to the City of Ponca City to protest a planned convenience store on the southwest corner of Highland Avenue and Waverly Street.
The 16 people who signed the protest say it is an inappropriate location for a convenience store that would also serve semi trucks.
Among their concerns are semis parking for long periods of time, a new housing addition that will be built west of the site, and the safety of students at Lincoln Elementary School.
The protest also cites the city’s Comprehensive Community Plan, saying the proposed store does not comply with plans for corridor development.
