The article reports on the Indiana Court of Appeals ruling on zoning regulations on real estate property for a service truck stop. It provides information that the trial court made an error when it upheld a board of zoning appeals ruling that disapproved certain proposed facilities for a travel plaza. It described the facilities that will be provided at the service trunk stop such as a service station, a 24-hour restaurant, restroom facilities with a waste tank disposal and propane refuelings and separate parking areas for vehicles and trucks. It examines the appeals court zoning regulation in Indiana restricting the use of real property to free use of land. Those services are given only to some of the travel plaza's potential customers as extra service.
