With a unanimous vote, Brownsville is to get the truck stop at 511 and Paredes Line rd.  Give what happened I think it is fair to say Rose Gowen got an earful from Tony Martinez.  The former owner of Casa De Nylon Galonsky spoke in favor of the Truck Stop, and then while leaving saluted Tony.
I do not think it was a bad compromise that the company is going to invest in a better bike trail.  It makes the company look like a good neighbor,
So for now, Brownsville will get some more construction jobs, and then a lot of part time jobs.  If done right the truck stop can be an anchor for the Palo Alto Battlefield, thereby enhancing its importance to the community.
