HARTLAND Pet product company Herbsmith received approval to expand its existing building in Hartland to accommodate growth.

Village 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 additional space.

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 relocated.
