The Lula City Council approved, on Monday, a rezoning request, with Mayor Milton Turner casting the tie-breaking vote, that allows for the operation of a truck terminal on approximately 17.1 acres at Mountain View/Highway 365.
In a rare occurrence, Turner made the decision to go along with two council members to approve the rezoning request from Tony McGuire to change the property from Highway Business to Light Industrial. Two council members opposed the move and one council member was absent from the meeting.
McGuire currently operates a trucking business in Gainesville with 16 trucks and 32 trailers. McGuire said his office hours would be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Several residents of The Hill at Mountain View subdivision spoke out about their traffic concerns with a trucking business locating on this site.
