SUSSEX CO., Del. - Monday night, the Sussex County Board of Adjustments is set to vote on whether or not a chicken processing center can be built at the site of the old Vlasic pickle plant in Millsboro.
This comes after a series of public hearings, where some members of the community voiced several concerns, including zoning procedures, taxpayer funding and environmental impacts.
If the board votes in favor of Allen Harim, the company will still need to seek approval from other involved groups, like DNREC, before construction can begin.
Allen Harim plans to bring approximately 700 jobs to Delaware with the plant, which it plans to open in 2015.
