Urban reserves gaining acceptance
By Jason Warick, The StarPhoenix January 19, 2012
A gas station on 22nd Street has joined the growing number of “urban reserve” businesses throughout the province, a phenomenon which seems to be gaining widespread acceptance.
Much of the initial uproar of a decade ago has subsided. Neighbouring businesses, other levels of government and the general public realize Cree Way Gas West on 22nd Street and other urban reserve companies make the same payments to municipalities and school divisions that other businesses do.
“Yes, I heard about it. I don’t really have any opinion on it,” said Tracy Hovde, assistant manager of another 22nd Street gas station, Esso on the Run.
