This may apply mostly to people in the midwest, but I was wondering how your community deals with or wishes it had dealt with ethanol plants. There is one that could come to my city and it is an unlisted use in the zoning ordinance. The people proposing it are saying it should be permitted by right or maybe as a conditional use in the light industrial district.
I've read up a little on ethanol plants and saw that those that burn coal end up producing more pollution than if the ethanol plant didn't exist and gasoline was used in its place. I also read that "dry milling" is better than "wet milling" whatever those are.
I am especially interested in what you wish you would have done in retrospect if an ethanol plant has come in and caused problems.
