PRESS RELEASE - May 23, 2016

On Friday, Costco Wholesale Corporation filed a petition for annexation and rezoning for a poultry processing complex at Hills Farm, an industrial tract located south of Cloverly Road.

“We are thrilled that we were able to help Costco find an appropriate location in the Greater Fremont area,” said Scott Getzschman, Mayor of Fremont. “It is rare for a community to realize a project of this scope and size. It speaks to all the regional assets we have that will make this project successful, and we are grateful for Costco’s commitment to the relationships they have developed throughout this process.”

“This location with its infrastructure and industrial character is a great fit for the project,” Fremont City Council president Larry Johnson shared. “We look forward to playing our role in the approval process.”

Cecilia Harry, Executive Director of the Greater Fremont Development Council, expressed her enthusiasm about moving this location forward through the formal process.
