Toledo Blade reported that the Toledo City Plan Commission approved a procedural step Thursday toward construction of a USD 700 million iron-processing plant on a former refinery site on the Toledo-Oregon border. By a 4-0 vote, the commission approved a factory site plan submitted by IronUnits LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cliffs Natural Resources, albeit with dozens of mostly technical conditions related to roadway access, utilities, landscaping, and other details about the project.

As part of its action, the commission approved waivers of two sections of city ordinances governing visual screening or landscaping and the placement of stormwater detention ponds.

Placement of those features remains subject to administrative approval by the city. Numerous other permits and plan reviews are required for the project.

But overall, the commission agreed, the project complies with Toledo’s city ordinances and zoning code and is allowed in the general industrial zone that applies to the area.

The plant will refine iron ore into hot-briquetted iron, a raw material used by electric-arc steel mills to produce steel.
