Daily Herald report

A "high-end" dog food manufacturing business is hoping to take over a vacant storefront in a Des Plaines strip mall.

The city council this week approved changes to the zoning code that would allow food processing establishments within some commercially zoned areas. City officials say PTJN Enterprises Inc. plans to cook, freeze, and distribute food products for pets on a limited scale at 1649 Oakton Place.

The company must now apply for a conditional use permit, which is also subject to city council approval.

The site formerly housed Boston Fish Market, which relocated to 1225 E. Forest Ave.
