Cedar Rapids Gazette: Cargill is resurrecting a nearly 2-year-old effort to build a $6.5 million rail yard in a southeast Cedar Rapids neighborhood to support its wet corning milling plant, which likely will trigger another round of opposition from neighbors who do not want the industrial use so close to home. Under pressure from those neighbors, the Cedar Rapids City Council on Aug. 27 unexpectedly rebuffed the agriprocessor’s request for an essential services designation so it could build the rail yard on private farm land off Otis Road S.E., in the same blue-collar neighborhood. Now Cargill is returning its attention to 28 acres of undeveloped city-owned land that was pitched initially, but abandoned after neighborhood objections.
