Document Description
This conditional use permit is for the addition of new whey processing operations for an infant nutrition product. HCC proposes to manufacture a value-added infant nutrition powder from their existing whey and to produce pharmaceutical lactose from their existing lactose product. The manufacture of the infant nutrition powder will require installation of a new 16,300 sf processing and dryer building and the production of pharmaceutical lactose will require the addition of a 5,700 sf dryer building. To support these activities, HCC requires a new 2,200 sf utility building for steam, a 2,300 sf building for refrigeration equipment, and a new 22,000 sf dry product warehouse to store the packaged product prior to shipment. HCC is proposing to construct a new administrative building, totaling 42,000 sf, along Lander Avenue.
