New bar?

Drove by the old breakfast restaurant across from Earl's BBQ and they have signs up that say " The Brothers Lounge "

  • Propelably illegal activities going on in there! It doesn't specify what type of lounge!

Koch Foods?

Hi everyone,
I'm interested in the area, but I noticed there's a large chicken processing plant nearby. It seems like this could be quite a nuisance and I had some questions for the neighborhood. Is the facility noisy at odd hours? Do they actually slaughter chickens there, or is it just processing? I'm worried about seeing or hearing truckloads of live birds. I'm out and about very early in the morning.

    It's actually by berteau and kostner . It's kind of on elevated land .

    The plant only processes the meat. No live birds are slaughtered on site. The biggest issue we have are with the occasional large truck wandering into the neighborhood or the employees dropping trash. My office works with the management to address issues relating to the plant. Depending on how close you are to the plant the opporations of the plant (noise and traffic) can be disruptive. I suggest you visit the area at various times to determine if you are sensitive to the activity the plant generates. There are no plans that I am aware of for the plant to relocate or close. Hope this helps.
