The Franklin County Board of Zoning Adjustment upheld a conditional use permit that would allow a concrete facility near Pacific.

Board Chairman Gordon Upchurch and Carl Ridder voted in favor of the permit. Kat Shaw, Andy Geisert and Josh Green voted against the permit.

Because four votes were needed to overturn the decision, the appeal was denied by the 2-3 vote.

The proposed Landvatter Ready Mix Facility will be located at Old Route 66/West Osage Street across the street from the MoDOT facility near Pacific.
