The City entered into a Development Agreement with Crystal Distribution Services, Inc. to construct a refrigerated food processing facility expansion in November 2012. The $2 million building will double the company’s current refrigerated storage capabilities which were damaged during a 2008 flood event. Officials expect the 11,000-square-foot project to be complete in the spring of 2013. The City took ownership of the expansion property after completing Phase I and II ESAs to satisfy All Appropriate Inquiry requirements. The City will donate the land and receive a former distribution center/warehouse as part of the agreement. The City intends to demolish the referenced structure located at 105 East 10th Street for a future riverfront housing initiative.
