LU: AG; GP: Public facility; Z: Public and institutional
Document Description
The project includes relocating the Darling Ingredients, Inc. rendering facility from its current location on Belgravia Ave, just southwest of downtown, to the undeveloped, 40-acre, city-owned parcel east of the existing RWRF. The facility would expand its peak daily processing operation from approx 850,000 pounds to approx 2 million pounds, which is consistent with the proposed permitted volume of up to 10 million pounds per week. The project would require a CUP, and a GPA and rezone from the existing public facility LUD and Public and institutional zoning classifications to a heavy industrial land use designation and industrial heavy zoning classification.
