New industrial business comes to Hwy 16

Planning commissioners voted unanimously to approve a significant development permit for a 15,000-square foot industrial complex which will be located at 22000 Highway 16 at the planning commission meeting Tuesday.

City staff recommended approval of the permit with two stated conditions, according to Senior Planner Ben Rhoads. The two conditions are the applicant must construct the needed sidewalk or pay a sidewalk fee of $444.44 and secure an offsite easement for drainage and utilities, Rhoads said.

The permit will go before the city board of directors Aug. 3.

Beehive Enterprises LLC of Springdale is the owner of the project, according to a report prepared by Rhoads and City Engineer Justin Bland. This facility is the first phase of a larger five-building complex, the report states.

The four remaining buildings will be built at a future date, which Beehive Enterprises LLC has not determined yet, according to the original staff report on the project prepared by Rhoads and Bland on April 7. The company did not say how many jobs this would bring to Siloam Springs and could not be reached for comment.

This is the permit's second review by the planning commission, Rhoads said at the meeting. The first review was during the planning commission meeting April 13 and went to the board of directors May 4. The permit was approved by the board May 4.

Following the May 4 city board meeting, the project was redesigned with the drainage pond being moved to the northeast corner of the property and the building relocated to the northwest corner, Rhoads said.

"This is in response to the recently approved project to the north of the site, for Rock Hill Foods and ... it should be noted that the size of the buildings remain the same as before at 15,000 square feet," Rhoads said.

Rock Hill Foods' significant development permit for a 67,178-square foot food processing facility was approved by the planning commission on May 11 and by the city board of directors on June 1. The facility will be located at the 22100 block of Highway 16.
