Pilot Project for PBC Approved 2/3/17 - Revoked 4/26/17
After a 6 Year Study
PBC Meeting and EAA Video
No one seems to know much about the 1 Mile Rule. It's is not an FDA regulation, County, or State law. Used horse shavings, manure, urine, and hay have been illegally and legally dumped for years in the EAA, the area that is in opposition to a recycling facility. US Sugar has been a legal disposal site for 6 ongoing years now. Pahokee received hundreds of thousands of tons of equine waste this season on US Sugar fields where the waste was raw land applied. After a 6 year study it would seem PBC should have known about this 1 Mile Rule prior to years of hearings and investments made by the applicant. In Delaware this rule does not apply. One Delaware packing company private labels for industry giants such as 'Green Giant'. A statement in the minutes said this business activity should be in another area. there are no available Industrial zoned properties adequate in size, would be tolerated, or in safe, logical traffic patterns. Wellington, Loxahatchee, The Glades, and the Ag Reserve do not want it and or have the 1 Mile Rule. The issues seem to be unclear, unresolved and no compromise yet again.
