An appeal to bring a green waste, food waste and manure composting facility to the southern part of the city is facing opposition from local dairy farmers and neighboring Chino.
The dairy farmers in the area believe the proposed project is incompatible with the surroundings and would lead to a significant increase in traffic. They are not alone; the project has been denied by the Planning Commission, which raised similar concerns.
Harvest Power applied for a permit to establish a green waste, food waste and manure composting facility on a 34-acre site — formerly occupied by two dairies on the Southwest corner of Schaefer and Campus avenues.
On Tuesday night, the City Council will review the project and decide whether to issue a conditional use permit or uphold the denial.
