Water flow problem rears its head again


ENID, Okla. — Northstar plan OK’d

The site plan for a $200 million canola plant was approved by the planning commission, pending confirmation that the builder will include rights-of-way along public property.

Northstar Agri Industries is building the plant between 66th and 78th, just north of the railroad tracks. Along with the large facility, Northstar has plans to construct a railroad spur to hold several dozen cars.

The entrance to the plant will be at the east side of the property along 66th.

“They’ve got stacking space for 16 semis, which is important that we’re off of the public street while they’re waiting to come through the entrance,” Bauer said.

There are several routes through the facility for different purposes.

“The access into the plant, throughout the plant, is very thought out,” he said.

An office building will be located on the north side of the plant.

Other business

MAPC approved a final plat for Skyview Estates and development plans for Black Sheep Oilfield Services and Ron Jones.

Lot splits for Donnie Arbuckle and Steve Rust Sr. also were confirmed.

Planning commissioners adopted a rezoning plan for a tank farm at 4701 E. Willow, but also tabled Magellan Pipeline Co.’s request for a site plan at that location until some engineering concerns could be addressed.

The approved agenda items now head to final consideration before the Enid City Commission, which meets next month.
