• 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.
