Statesville residents fight to stop new truck stop in neighborhood


STATESVILLE, N.C. - Families in Statesville are gearing up for a fight Tuesday morning, to keep a truck stop out of their neighborhood.

Channel 9 has been following for more than a year.

Neighbors appealed the city’s decision to put a Love’s Truck Stop near exit 154 off Interstate 40.

The Board of Adjustment has heard the evidence and will meet at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday to hear arguments before the ruling.

If it rules in favor of the city, neighbors would have to take the case to court.
