BLAIR –  Several requests for  permits allowing poultry farms have been fielded by the Washington County Planning Commission, some have been approved, more requests are expected.  While those poultry farms –  raising birds for the Costco Chicken Processing Plant under construction in Fremont –  are expected to add to the area economy, neighbors of those proposed operations are not happy, fearing odor and pollution issues.  Some neighbors are organizing discussion events in the upcoming days.  The Washington County Planning Commission’s next meeting is this Thursday, April 5th at 7pm.
