Got an opinion on the proposed truck stop at the New River/I-17 exit? Share your thoughts at the upcoming community meeting on May 20, 12-3 p.m., at Daisy Mountain Fire Station #141.

The New River/Desert Hills Community Association’s monthly public meeting with county supervisor Andy Kunasek will be focusing on the plan of development for a truck/gas stop and Subway at the corner of I-17 and New River Road. The plan of development has been approved; now, the applicants will be submitting permits for approval.

Two discussion meetings regarding this truck stop have already been facilitated by the NR/DHCA. At these previous meetings, attendees expressed concerns about how the truck stop would affect the area, including lighting, increased traffic, possible litter, environmental concerns, and community safety issues.

Since the meeting is set for 12-3 p.m., some residents may not be able to attend due to work conflicts. The NR/DHCA has offered to take comments via email at or phone at (602) 432-2800 and share them at the meeting.

Daisy Mountain Fire Station #141 is located near the crossroads of New River Road and Circle Mountain Road, 43814 N. New River Road.
