Map of gas station void in Green Valley

An upscale master planned community intentionally planned for gas stations to exist outside of their boundaries, not within. But in 2015, Smith's grocery store opened a gas station inside the shopping center parking lot, and it was a big deal for suburban residents of Henderson, Nevada, in the Las Vegas metro area. The red dot indicates where the new gas station is.

To show readers where the gas stations were located in relation to the Green Valley and Green Valley Ranch boundaries, I obtained a shapefile of the exact boundaries from the city of Henderson GIS department. From Gas Buddy, it was easy to get a list of gas stations and plot them with markers.
