While they say it's a storage facility that will sell damaged cars and not car parts, neighbors simply say they don't want it in their backyard.
"You can put a beautiful fence around it and you can put a pot of flowers on each vehicle but it still isn't going to be enough to convince me that this is nothing more than a junkyard," one resident said during Thursday's meeting.
Upset residents say it will also hurt the make up of the area.
"It not only impacts the value of our properties but it also impacts the wildlife," another resident said.
Copart once again declined WAVE 3's opportunity for them to set the record straight about their company and their intentions.
But during their Question and Answer Thursday night, a Copart employee told the group that up to 2,800 cars could fill the lot, sitting there for a maximum of 90 days.
They also say that the vehicles would be emptied of any fluids before they are hauled to the facility for an online auction.
While the entire plan doesn't sit well with residents, it also doesn't sit well with Metro Councilman David Yates.
"We're trying to do everything we can to improve Southwest Louisville and I think this really pushes in the opposite direction. We're all about the jobs, we really want to have businesses open in our community. We just want to make sure it's in the right place," Yates told WAVE 3.
Copart already operates a facility along the Outer Loop which takes up about 7 acres.
Company leaders said during Thursday's meeting that the Outer Loop facility is too small, which is why they wish to relocate.
Yates said he wants to work with Copart and find land elsewhere for the company.
There would have to be a zoning board adjustment meeting and approval before the plan can move forward; so far Copart hasn't filed that paperwork.
