CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A Carroll County camp wants a judge to review a plan that will allow a hog farm to be built 800 yards away from the camp.
YMCA Camp Tecumseh Outdoor Center filed the judicial review of the zoning approval in Carroll County Circuit Court July 31st.
White County commissioners approved the rezoning of about seven acres from agricultural to agricultural industrial on July 1. Smith-Erickson Farms Incorporated plans to house more than 9,000 hogs at a farm on that land.
Camp Tecumseh said the decision imposes a burden on the camp's religious activities, including outdoor chapel services.
In June, camp officials told News 18 the farm's smell would hurt their outdoor-based business. On Monday White County Attorney George Loy filed a motion to dismiss.
A call to Camp Tecumseh was not returned. George Loy was out of the office Tuesday and could not be reached for comment.
