Permit approved for custom meat processing operation
The Wadena County Board approved a conditional use permit for George and Susan Oberfell to have a custom butcher and meat processing operation on their property in Huntersville Township located in an A-2 mixed agricultural forestry district. The planning commission recommended approval for the CUP based on the following findings of fact:
The requested use will not create an unreasonable excessive burden on the existing roads or other utilities.
The requested use is compatible with the surrounding area and will not significantly depreciate nearby properties.
The structure and the use shall have an appearance that will not have an unreasonable adverse effect on nearby properties since essentially it will be no change.
The requested use, in the opinion of the planning commission, is reasonably related to the existing land use and environment.
The requested use is consistent with the Wadena County Land Use Control Ordinance as it is an agricultural use.
The requested use is not in conflict with the Wadena County Comprehensive Plan.
The requested use will not create an unreasonably adverse effect because of noise, odor, glare, or general unsightliness for nearby property owners.
