Plans For Hiland Dairy Foods Expansion Moving Forward

TYLER, TX – Plans for the expansion of a Tyler dairy plant are moving forward.

The City of Tyler’s planning and zoning commission approved a request from Hiland Dairy Foods Company LLC. The company requested that the commission recommend city council approve a road closure as a part of the Hiland Dairy Foods plant’s expansion.

Barry Beaman, General Manager at Hiland Foods, says with the plant’s increase will also come the need for new employees down the line.

The company is requesting to close an unpaved portion of East Locust Street in order to replat the right-of-way and combine the plant's properties to the north and south of the road.
