HARTLAND — Pet product
company Herbsmith received approval to expand its
existing building in Hartland to accommodate growth.
Administrator David Cox said the Plan Commission
approved the request to modify the 60,000-square-foot
building unanimously at its Monday meeting.
The first phase of
the project would include a 30,144-square-foot addition
to the building at 455 E. Industrial Drive, Suite 1. A
second future phase would include 25,900 square feet of
Cox said discussion
during the Plan Commission meeting focused on
clarifications as the 56,000-square-foot expansion
project had been approved by the Commission in early
2014, but was never constructed. Herbsmith returned
Monday proposing to complete the addition in two phases.
The PC approval on
Monday included the same conditions as the original
approval, including all the new building materials
should match the original building materials, the
landscape would need to be upgraded and a Dumpster
herbal solutions for dogs, cats and horses.
