Permits granted for full-service truck stop near Boardman

Posted: Updated:
PENDLETON, OR. (AP) - Plans for a full-service truck stop west of Boardman, Oregon, have shifted to the fast lane.

The Morrow County Planning Commission approved the necessary permits this week.

Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores has spent six years trying to build a travel center at the Interstate 84 location. It would include a gas station, convenience store, fast food restaurant and tire shop.

The company has faced zoning and legal challenges from a smaller fuel company concerned about the presence of a national chain.

Morrow County Planning Director Carla McLane says Love's should now have everything it needs to go ahead with the purchase of 49 acres owned by the city of Boardman.

She says the center could be open by the end of the year.
