On Monday we received an email with the following letter from GFDA President/CEO Brett Doney to the Cascade County Zoning Board of Adjustment attached. The letter is concerning the permit application for the proposed Big Sky Cheese plant which the ZBOA will be considering this coming Thursday, June 27th. You can also view and download the letter here GFDA ZBOA letter.
“The proposed project will be criticized for being the precursor of something too big. However, all that is before you today is this one proposed project.” – Brett Doney
Doney’s comment here seems to be the crux of the issue. But there’s also plenty of very interesting reading in Doney’s letter revealing the true state of our current local economy.
This will continue to be a very hot issue in the months to come. Let us know what you think in the comments section or on our Facebook page.
