Steuben County Community Center Angola, IN
(ANGOLA) - The Steuben County Plan Commission voted 7-1 on Wednesday night that a special exception for a compost facility in a district zoned agriculture would not adversely affect the county's comprehensive plan.
Ralph and Karen Holman and C.M. Holmes Farms are the petitioners.
Michael Holman spoke on behalf of the petitioners. He said the facility would compost manure from the neighboring Schumucker farm which would cut down on truck traffic on nearby roads.
The compost facility would be located north of 7030 East 400 South in Richland Township.
The special exception request will be heard by the Steuben County Board of Zoning Appeals on September 14th.
