Officials are crediting a perfect alignment of events with creating the right situation for the planned CHS, Inc. Spiritwood Nitrogen Project to be built in the region. Dale Enerson, cooperative member services specialist for North Dakota Farmers Union, spoke about the project at the regular meeting of the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. Board of Directors meeting Monday.
A north Fargo developer is suing the city for denying building permits on land the company was once able to develop but no longer can because of expansion of the Federal Emergency Management Agency flood plain.
Two new projects being considered would be in the very heart of the North Dakota Badlands.
An out-of-state owner of the mineral rights, on land purchased by the U.S. Forest Service, for protection of the nearby Elkhorn Ranch portion of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, has applied to the Forest Service for a permit to operate a gravel pit for the purpose of mining gravel.
The site of the Elkhorn Ranch in the badlands of North Dakota looks and feels much as it did when Theodore Roosevelt retreated there to raise cattle following the deaths of his wife and mother in 1884.
The cattle are gone, as the ranch is now part of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but the sweeping views of wind-carved buttes, cacti and colorful rock formations remain pristine and are a major draw for the more than half-a-million visitors to the park each year.

A proposal for 25 12-unit apartment buildings on an 18-acre tract of land east of Adamski Park came to light less than a month ago. And a Denver developer brought the vision of an RV park, assisted living center, restaurant, convenience store and two hotels to the council recently.
If plans pan out for him, these structures will be built within the next four years.
Ultra Green’s planned Devils Lake wheat straw fiber processing facility will open late this year, and officials said the new plant is expected to provide an immediate boost to the regional economy.
Consider that in 2013, its first full year of production, it will create 112 jobs. That total will nearly double in 2014 and grow to about 400 in 2017.
