Fresno Rendering Plant Relocation and Expansion Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
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 underdeveloped, 40 acre, City-owned parcel east of the existing RWRF. The facility would expand its peak daily processing operations 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 Conditional Use Permit, and a General Plan Amendment and Rezone from the existing "Public Facility" land use designation and "Public and Institutional" zoning classification to a "Heavy Industrial" land use designation and "Industrial-Heavy" zoning classification.
