City approves Taylor Loop gas station


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A controversial proposed gas station at the intersection of Taylor Loop and Highway 10 in Little Rock got the green light to move forward from the city board on Monday.

The city board took a vote on the proposed 20-pump station and approved the ordinance by a vote of 7-to-3.

THV11 spoke with Samantha Chaney before Monday's meeting, and she's been heavily involved in the effort to mobilize people in opposition of the gas station.

"We know that we tried our best and we spent hours and hours fighting this and whatever happens I can know that we had a huge team and we put tons of effort into it and so, if we lose, we didn't lay down and lose," said Chaney.

The city board heard public comment on this ordinance for the better part of an hour, not including all the time spent deliberating among board members over various aspects of the proposal.

In the end, the city board went along with the recommendation of the planning commission, which advised to approve it.
