Fertilizer plant hearing delayed
A public rezoning hearing on the proposed $1.3 billion fertilizer plant in Iowa was delayed by the Scott County Board of Supervisors Friday. The engineering firm for the fertilizer plant requested the delay, and the public meeting was rescheduled for Aug. 28 instead of Aug. 2.
The meeting will listen to the request to rezone 318 acres of prime farmland for heavy industrial use. Nearly 200 people showed up for an informational meeting in Walcott, Iowa, and at the Scott County Planning and Zoning Commission meeting July 17.
The request to delay the hearing stemmed from Stanley Consultants, a Muscatine engineering firm, who wanted to have more time to prepare a fuller presentation, it was reported. Stanley Consultants is the party making the rezoning request on behalf of Orascom Construction Industries.
