Jerome County Commission Denies CAFO Application Near Minidoka National Monument in Idaho

On October 9th Jerome County Commissioners in Idaho voted to deny the Big Sky Farms application to locate a confined animal feeding operation (CAFO) near the Minidoka National Monument. The proposed CAFO posed a significant threat to the World War II Japanese internment camp and historic site adjacent to the monument. The National Trust’s Western Regional Office began working with the National Park Service’s Superintendent for the Minidoka Internment National Monument earlier this year to stop the permit that would have allowed the Big Sky CAFO boundary to come within a few hundred yards of the monument. In addition, the Trust has placed the Minidoka Internment Camp on its 2007 Eleven Most Endangered Historic Places to bring national attention to this issue.

Big Sky Farms is expected to file an appeal on the decision and more protections are probably needed to protect the Monument permanently from the CAFO threat.

To learn more about the threat to the Minidoka Internment Camp historic site, please visit http://www.nationaltrust.org/11most/08.html.
