How will the construction affect wetland areas and wildlife?

Two wetland areas sit in the wooded areas – not where the building will go. One will be preserved as part of the detention pond. Wildlife can share the property with us. Nothing on site will be harmful to them. The building is going where a tilled, productive soybean field, which has been treated with herbicide, currently exists; so there will be little to no disruption to habitats. Wildflowers in this field have been purposely killed since this land has been farmed. 

We will follow all rules and regulations required of any permitting agency at the local, state, and federal level.
