Alarge group of Summerlake residents say they are bound and determined to stop the development of an $8.5 million project that would break ground close to their homes. Residents of the Summerlake housing addition said they were notified by a certified letter March 19 or 20 that a Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores was planning to open a truck stop on acreage northwest of the intersection of Ind. 13 and CR 800S.
