Agronomy facility gets initial nod: Variance, CUP recommended to town board

Two hearings marked progress in CHS Prairie Lakes' plan to build a new agronomy facility in Todd Township.
At both hearings, CHS requests were questioned by residents of the area near Portage Lake, but township officials recommended approval.
The Starbuck-based agricultural service firm, which has operated a facility for 50 years in the city of Park Rapids, hopes to store fertilizer, feed and seed on a 27.8-acre property at the southwest corner of County Road 48 and County Road 28.
The company recently purchased the land from Todd and Tracy Hughes and had part of it rezoned from agricultural to commercial.
