Planning commission approves rail car storage area at Flint Hills
Flint Hills plans to start storing and shipping propylene from its Rosemount site. As such, the refinery will build a tank expansion, loading spur track and rail car storage area.
City planner Eric Zweber said the tank expansion and the loading spur are minor expansions of an existing use and so city approval is not necessary. However, the rail car storage area is a new use and was reviewed by the planning commission on Tuesday night.
