Greenwood to slam brakes on more truck stops

A proposed ban on new truck stops at Greenwood’s two Interstate 65 interchanges has gained unanimous support from the city council.

The council also might ban additional gas stations and convenience stores, according to the Daily Journal of Franklin.

A lengthy list of businesses, including dog kennels and boat dealers, already is banned by the city.

Mayor Charles Henderson proposed the ban because a developer approached him about starting a truck stop at the Main Street exit, where one truck stop already operates.
