Wallenstein Feed planning expansion

by Patrick Raftis

MAPLETON - Township council has supported in principal an expansion proposal from Wallenstein Feed and Supply.

On Oct. 30 council also directed township staff to proceed with discussions with company officials and report back to council as necessary.

The company is proposing a number of changes to the existing site plan for its operation in the hamlet of Wallenstein.

Proposed changes include: a new mill, new warehouse and relocation of fuel pumps and truck parking to land recently purchased by the company.

Plans also include a new storm water management reservoir and associated wastewater treatment and relocation of weigh scales.

A letter

A letter from the company indicates the changes will be implemented in phases.

The letter states a wastewater plan has made it past the technical review stage and the Grand River Conservation Authority has approved an environmental impact study.

Company officials said county planners will address  zoning issues and present a draft bylaw to council for consideration.

Members of a delegation from the company noted road studies completed by both the township and the company indicate reconstruction of Yatton Road will be required.

Councillor Dennis Craven asked if council could do anything to help speed up the project.

“Just get your staff to respond to us,” said Wallenstein Feed representative Sam Head.

Councillor Lori Woodham said, “I just want to say thank you for coming  and giving us a heads up.”

Woodham noted the new council will soon be into budget deliberations and “this will give us more information to be proactive.”
