Cargill Rail Yard Project
July 2019 Status Update:
Cargill has purchase agreements for two farm parcels near the Cargill corn milling plant off Otis Road with the intent of building its proposed rail yard. A meeting is planned with neighbors to discuss the project. The proposal will be reviewed by Cedar Rapids Planning Commission prior to it being presented at an upcoming City Council meeting.
Cargill is committed to operating responsibly across the agriculture, food, industrial and financial markets we serve as we pursue our goal of being the global leader in nourishing people. At the heart of our business is the community we serve.
Employees at Cargill Cedar Rapids develop relationships by reaching out, contributing and volunteering to make the surrounding area as great as its people. Since Cargill began operating in Cedar Rapids 51 years ago, the company has been committed to the people of Cedar Rapids.
As a longtime member of the Cedar Rapids community, we want to design this rail yard project in a way that has the least impact as possible on the location and the area surrounding it, while providing a safe working environment for our employees stationed there. That has been our goal from the beginning. We want to work closely with City officials and those within the vicinity of the proposed location to achieve this.
