Cat Creek Energy Master Site Plan Modification Issues #6 through # 9
The Elmore County Commissioners approved 26 modifications to the Cat Creek Energy Master Site Plan when they signed the Development Agreement on February 9, 2018. While these modifications were discussed in public meetings, the vast majority of county residents were and still are completely unaware of the changes.
We believe this project has changed so much in scope and specification that county residents need to reexamine the entire project and review all the modifications to this large-scale project planned for Camas Prairie and Little Camas Prairie area of southern Idaho.
