The owners of Midtown Nursery say they will fight the recently announced plans to turn their corner of Cooper and Central into a permanent location for food trucks.


Weekend posts to the Midtown Nursery Facebook group say people think the nursery is leaving the location voluntarily to make way for a food truck destination there called "The Truck Stop." But, they say, this is not the case.


"Loeb Properties wants to re-zone the corner of Central and Cooper to house food trucks," said Whitney Taylor, daughter of Midtown Nursery owner Michael Earnest. "This means that we would be forced to re-locate or possibly go out of business."


Michael Earnest said Sunday his lease agreement with Loeb Properties expires in February. But he had a verbal agreement with the company to extend the lease.


Nursery owners are asking supporters to sign a petition at the store to stop the action. The proposed rezoning plan will soon be reviewed by government officials, the Facebook post said.
