Tuesday night, the Fremont city council approved plans for a larger Costco Wholesale chicken facility in an 8-0 vote, according to source JournalStar.

The original facility plans were 250,000-sq-ft, and the new plans as approved would cover 360,000-sq-ft. The plans for the associated hatchery increased from 75,000-sq-ft to 85,000-sq-ft. There is also an additional 32,000-sq-ft feed mill. City documents say the expansion increases the facility cost to $275 million, up from the original $180 million.
