Lawsuit filed after rejection of truck and rail facility

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The company that pushed for a controversial truck and rail facility near Fort Wayne’s GM plant is now suing Allen County’s Board of Commissioners.

Crown Enterprises of Warren, Michigan is accusing commissioners of taking “arbitrary and capricious” actions when they denied a rezoning request for the facility in January, according to the Journal Gazette.

The lawsuit accuses the Board of playing favorites by approving a competing proposal from a Kansas City developer who bought land in the Stonebridge Business Park, which is owned by the County.

Crown’s proposed facility would have been placed on 87 acres near the GM plant, and it drew strong and vocal opposition from people living nearby.

They either want to be compensated for the land they bought, or have the Board’s decision overturned.
