The Burleigh County Planning Commission will consider denying a permit to convert 300 acres of agriculture land along Interstate 94 near Menoken to industrial. The proposed zoning change was continued from last month's meeting in order for commissioners to obtain more information about the availability of industrial land within Burleigh County. That report should be available at the meeting today.
Menoken township officials and neighbors testified against the proposed industrial development last month. Staff says creating more industrial land in this location is not consistent with the Burleigh County Land Use plan from 1980.
