LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Residents packed the Virginia Avenue United Methodist Church to Thursday night to sound off about a proposed auto storage facility being built in Southwest Louisville.
California-based Copart says it wants to open a lot on nearly 60 acres of land around Dixie Highway and the Snyder.
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.
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.
