Davison County OKs permit for $500M soybean plant near Mitchell, SD

The Davison County Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to grant a conditional use permit to the South Dakota Soybean Processors for the company’s planned $500 million soybean processing facility planned to be located south of Mitchell.

It ends the approval process at the county level in Mitchell and will allow SDSP to keep working to fundraise and put down equipment deposits, with a planned ground-breaking in 2023 and the plant’s scheduled opening in 2025.

The commission, sitting as the county Board of Adjustment, voted 5-0 to approve the permit, with some stipulations on the plan, mainly related to the already underway traffic study in the project’s corridor.
