Barkman Honey seeks warehouse permit

Hillsboro’s former Heartland Foods building once again might soon be repurposed as a warehouse.

Barkman Honey recently filed a conditional use permit, which will allow the business to use the space as a warehouse.

A permit was needed because city zoning laws don’t allow for a warehouse in most cases, Hillsboro administrator Matt Stiles said.

“Or we’d have to change the zoning,” he said. “We opted to ask them to do a conditional use permit so the underlying zoning retains.”

Another option is to use the building as a retail location, Stiles said.

Barkman Honey could not be reached for comment about plans for the building.
