The Love’s truck stop debate has now cost Statesville taxpayers over $100,000.

That’s the latest number from the City of Statesville for attorneys and other fees relating to its defense of the Planning Director’s ruling that a truck stop should be allowed in the B-4 zoning district.

Some are concerned that placing a truck stop at the intersection of Highway 64 and Old Mocksville Road will hurt the area with traffic and noise.

The City has acted as somewhat of a disinterested third party defending Planning Director David Currier’s decision.

Statesville Council approves site plan, distilleries

Statesville City Council members approved a site plan for a Mocksville Highway O’Reilly Auto Parts store this week.

That’s according to an e-mail from City Spokeswoman Nancy Davis.

The group also approved the Downtown Statesville Development Corporation to continue managing the downtown municipal service district.

Additionally, the first reading of an amendment to allow breweries and distilleries in the B5 zoning district was approved.
