DEVENS — The Devens Enterprise Commission voted unanimously Thursday night to grant a Level-2 Unified Permit to Salad Bowl Farms, LLC for a 204,000-square-foot commercial greenhouse to be built on Devens land off Walker Road in Shirley.
The vote followed a public hearing and about an hour of discussion and deliberation.
The plant will utilize recycled rainwater to irrigate its indoor crop, with a well only for backup water and domestic use. The 13-acre site is zoned for environmental businesses.
