Frito-Lay plans to add a parking lot to a large, open site it owns just outside Aberdeen city limits, across the railroad tracks from its existing plant.
The company wants to build 98 new spaces for trailers as part of its 164,244-square-foot expansion on the Aberdeen site, Brian Morgan, a representative of the engineering firm KCI Technologies, told members of the Harford County Development Advisory Committee Wednesday.
The expansion of the warehouse will take up existing parking space, he said. "It's going to kind of encroach on a good portion of that parking area."
The parking lot would sit on about 38 acres, a small corner of the 102.87-acre site the company owns on the other side of the tracks, on property in the county. The existing Frito-Lay plant is just inside Aberdeen city limits.
Frito-Lay has owned the vacant site since 2000, when the company bought it from Cranberry Joint Venture, according to online state property records.
It would add 100 full-time employees to the county's workforce and is expected to be completed next year at the back of the existing property.
Frito-Lay's existing plant is 360,736 square feet.
Retail in Belcamp
Three new restaurants and one new store are being planned in the Belcamp area, near the Riverside Shopping Center by Philadelphia Road and east of James Way.
Calriver LLC wants to consolidate two lots next to each other on Demetrius Way and build sites for a 5,600-square-foot restaurant, a 5,200-square-foot drive-through restaurant and a 3,000-square-foot retail building.
