Proposed truck stop near Santa Fe faces setback amid protest
Jul. 29, 2017
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A proposed truck stop near Santa Fe that is drawing opposition from some residents has suffered a setback.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://goo.gl/6rDtGw ) that Santa Fe County rejected the developer's application Friday, finding it incomplete. That means partners in the venture would have to file a new application next month.
County spokeswoman Kristine Mihelcic says the Pilot Flying J Co. application lacked a plan and profile stamped by a New Mexico-registered engineer for site access.
The proposal to construct a 24-hour travel center southwest of the Interstate 25 interchange with New Mexico 14 has inflamed nearby residents.
They have packed meetings held this summer by the national truck stop giant and hope to establish a firewall of community opposition early in the development review process.
