DELANO, MN – Delano City Council will consider a preliminary plat for one housing development; final plats for two other housing developments; a preliminary plat for the West Metro Business Park Second Addition; a site and building plan review and conditional use permit for KLN Foods to locate in the business park.

A preliminary plat for a development named Greywood will be considered.

Greywood is planned for 99 acres in southwestern Delano. A total of 239 single-family lots are planned for the development.

The second housing development on the agenda is Liberty Landing, located along Wright County Road 16 between Fox Meadow and the Crow River. Plans call for the development to have 96 single-family lots.

A 49-lot single-family residential subdivision named Highland Ridge Seventh Addition is the final housing development on the agenda.

In response to land-area requirements of two pending business park development projects – Landscape Structures and KLN – the city has initiated a replat of the West Metro Business Park  First Addition, as well as a two-lot preliminary and final plat for the second addition. The second addition will incorporate an additional 11.7 acres of land west of the first addition subdivision, which is 27.5 acres.

KLN has submitted plans for the construction of a 201,000-square-foot processing and warehouse facility in the business park. The development plans call for several future expansions within the next five to 10 years, which would total 273,080 square feet, for a total of 474,080 square feet.
