Good Earth changes request, scales back wood processing plant proposal

Good Earth Power (GEPAZ) has scaled back their plans for a wood processing plant on State Highway 64 near Valle and is now only requesting approval for a wood composting yard at the location.

Kevin Ordean of Roots Composting and Good Earth Soils originally submitted a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) application to Coconino County Department of Community Development to process wood chips and wood poles associated with the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI) with the U.S. Forest Service on property near Valle. The request included storage of timber and processing of logs through industrial sized debarkers, saws, and wood chippers. The request also stated that up to 150 logging trucks could travel to the location each day.
