CF Industries works with Woodbury Co. to create master permit


CF Industries is the largest project Woodbury County, Iowa has ever been involved with, and because of that, the county has had to make some adjustments to how they handle the company's expansion.

County leaders said CF would have required multiple, maybe even hundreds, of individual permits for their construction areas, training facility, subcontractor facilities, and temporary buildings.

Instead of making them submit each request separately, the county has worked with CF to come up with a master permitting agreement. This encompasses all of the permits they will need to go through with their project. "The reason we're trying to be flexible with CF and them with us is because we've never seen a project like this, nor did we anticipate it, and ordinances just aren't drafted for the size and scope of this type of project," Woodbury Co. Planning and Zoning Director John Pylelo said.

CF has already signed the agreement, and the company is expected to finish the application process within the next week.
