Project Description

Oilseed crushing and bioprocessing facility in Famoso, CA

Completed research to determine all city, county, state, federal approvals for an oilseed crushing and bioprocessing facility. This included determining all CEQA environmental requirements and special environmental studies necessary. Additionally, this investigation determined what offsite improvements were required for the roadway, curb and gutter, and wet and dry utilities.

It has been our firm’s good fortune to have become acquainted with, and worked with, Terry Strom for the past several years. He has assisted us with some very difficult and tenuous discretionary approval projects in jurisdictions beyond our firm’s usual familiarity. His research and recommendations have consistently been extremely thorough and well documented, and have been invaluable in helping us to determine the best strategy and approach to securing our approvals. He is a man of complete integrity, and one we would highly recommend.
