Vote planned on Woodburn truck stop rezoning

Allen County commissioners will vote today on whether to rezone a site near Woodburn to make way for a truck stop.

The rezoning petition involves a little more than 25 acres at the southwest corner of the U.S. 24 and Indiana 101 interchange.

Petitioners are requesting a change from agriculture to commercial interchange for a Love’s Travel Stop and other future commercial development.

The Allen County Plan Commission held a public hearing on the matter in November that was continued at the December meeting, said Michelle Wood, senior planner for the Department of Planning Services.

Seven people from Woodburn and a Fort Wayne resident spoke against the rezoning, according to hearing documents.

The Plan Commission will make a recommendation to approve the rezoning petition, based on its findings, Wood said.

County commissioners will have the final say.

Other issues on today’s agenda include:

•A petition to rezone 2.7 acres on the east side of the 5200 to 5300 block of Indiana 101 from planned general industrial to suburban residential to allow residential uses.

• The Allen County Community Development Corp., an organization that offers economic development programs and incentives to existing and new county-based businesses, will have its annual meeting.
