In the presentation, Rob Osterhoudt of Bohler Engineering tells the board that thinking of what's proposed as a "truck stop" is a misconception. Rather it is a "neighborhood market with fuel service," where one can get "quinoa bowls or rice bowls" and "a lot of fresh options that are quick and convenient." He called it a "novelty market" and predicted that it is going to be "an industry changer."
Udell reports that the presentation was followed by "much heated discussion," which is not documented in the video. The Livingston Planning Board will hold another public hearing on the project in June.
