Document Title
Fresno Rendering Plant Relocation and Expansion Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Current land use: agriculture; General Plan land use designation: Public Facility; Zoning: 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, 26-acre, City-owned parcel east of the existing RWRF. The facility would expand its peak daily processing operation from approximately 850,000 pounds to approximately 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 ion to a "Heavy Industrial" land use designation and "Industrial-Heavy" zoning classification.
