Advising Removal of Above-Ground Canopy At Municipal Gas Station

To the Editor:

After reading recent published articles, transcripts, and editorials regarding the Princeton municipal gas station, the right course of action is for the municipality to admit its error, make amends to its residents and remove the above-ground canopy. The municipal administration admits that their communication about the project was flawed and “re-wrapping the top of the canopy from black to red” will make no difference — it’s just plain UGLY and detracts from Princeton’s beauty. For decades municipal employees fueled their vehicles without a canopy and can continue to do so — being outside is simply part of most of their jobs anyway. Where is Ronald Reagan when we need him? “Mayor Lempert—tear down this canopy!”
