City council says no to truck stop

-A A +A

The Williamstown City Council  met Tuesday night to hear from the proposed developers of a Love’s Travel Center on Barnes Road and voted 3 -2 not to approve a text amendment that would allow the development in a highway commercial zone.

Some residents of the area were not pleased with the development.

“We want growth, but I’ve got concerns,” said Emerson Rider, who owns property adjacent to the proposed site.
Developers said the travel plaza would have been constructed on 30 acres on the west side of Interstate-75 and would feature a convenience store, gas pumps, parking for 90 trucks overnight. Outlying lots would be used for a hotel and two restaurants.
