The Maricopa City Council approved another conditional use permit (CUP) Tuesday, this time for a wood-grinding company that happens to sit next door to the planned private racetrack Apex.

The company – Arizona Wood Grinding and Recycling – leases the 6.4 acres on the northeast corner of Ralston Road and State Route 238. And despite the legal dilemma born out of the CUP granted to Private Motorsports Group, Apex’s parent company, the property owner decided to follow the same route.
