Plans for a new chicken-processing plant are moving forward, thanks to successful negotiations between city of Tulare, Ca., officials and the company proposing the plant. Tulare Economic Director Bob Nance said a meeting last week between city officials and proponents of a House of David chicken-processing plant went well, but plans for the proposed building will have to be resubmitted. Building codes have changed since the project was initially approved, reports the Tulare Advance-Register
. The changes won't be significant, Nance said.
The processing plant was originally proposed in 2009 and would employ up to 120 people. Economic obstacles has led to the construction delay, though the permit for the plant is still valid.
Tulare is also working to add a meat-processing plant to the city, though the city is still looking for potential suitors for the project.
