A proposal to raise fish and grow herbs and vegetables in Franklin could obtain initial zoning approval this week.
Scott Biller has proposed the aquaponic operaton for 4.8 acres south of the 3500 block of W. Elm Road. The city Plan Commission, at its Thursday night meeting, is to consider recommending a special use permit for the project.
An aquaponic operation is a recirculating system that uses fish waste to help fertilize produce, with the produce helping to filter the water used to raise the fish. It is designed to use small plots of land and create a minimal amount of waste.
Biller, an architect, plans to build four separate 10,000-square-foot greenhouses and fish tanks, where he would raise tilapia and grow tomatoes, lettuce and other vegetables, as well as herbs. Biller told me he hopes to begin construction in June on the first building.
Biller is vice president of Integrated Aquaponics Inc., which will focus mainly on raising produce. The development would be built on a small portion of 80 acres of farm land that have long been owned by Biller's family.» Read Full Article
