A new truck stop is set for construction off Arizona State Route Loop 303 in the city of Glendale, Arizona.
Members of the Glendale City Council have now given their approval to a rezoning of the proposed vacant site to allow for the construction of a Love’s Travel Stop location.
The project, which has been the subject of several public input meetings, will go up off the highway loop between Bethany Home Road and Glendale Avenue.
According to plans, the location will include truck parking space, a small grocery store and restaurant.
The project has been in the talking stage since at least last year and opposed by nearby residents who said they were concerned about the noise and pollution that might come from having trucks idling for extended periods of time on the property.
In voting on the matter, council members changed the zoning designation of the site in question from agricultural to commercial.
Based in Oklahoma City, the Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores company currently has more than 510 locations nationwide, with revenues exceeding $20 billion in 2018.
The company’s locations generally range in size from 8,000 square feet to as much as 16,000 square feet and can include multiple bays for car and truck fueling, as well as a multitude of truck parking spaces.
