Expansion Allows Company to Stay in Sand Springs

A favorable decision by the Sand Springs Planning Commission means a local manufacturing firm won’t have to leave town in order to expand. It also means 40 jobs and paychecks will be staying in Sand Springs.
At an April 14 meeting, commission members voted on rezoning a tract of land for light industrial use, near 209th West Avenue and Wekiwa Road.
The Sand Springs Home requested the change from agricultural to light industrial. The Home intends to sell the land to Cust-O-Bend, which wants build a 70,000-SF facility.
Nearby residents spoke out against it, saying they feared pollution and increased traffic count. Jeremy Herrington, Cust-O-Bend vice president, said the operation would be very quiet, produce little to no air pollution, and have between four to six trucks entering and leaving per day.
Herrington said he would be willing to line the property with trees to reduce sound if noise was an issue, and that a mesh fence would be erected for visual concerns.
