Thursday May 6th, Dirt Hugger had the official hearing with The Dalles Planning Commission. Kicking off the meeting there were 5 letters in support of a composting facility in The Dalles! A really big thanks to Dick Gassman and the site team for their great work and support. Andrea from The Port gave a fantastic testimony as well. Rounding it out was a series of qualifying statements from DEQ representative Bruce Lumper. The Planning Commission spent two hours listening to comments and asking inquisitive and astute questions. Ending the evening was an unanimous approval of Dirt Hugger’s Conditional Use Permit on The Port property. We really appreciate all of the help and support The Dalles community has lent during the permitting process.
