Ramaco Launches New Initiative

Ramaco Carbon has launched a new initiative named “Get the Facts” that, the company says, is dedicated to providing a wide range of information about Ramaco's project in Sheridan County.

Company officials say the intent is to correct mistaken information and misrepresentations about the project. A new section of Ramaco Carbon's website covers a range of subjects including expanding access to the region's recreation areas, the project's location relative to the Tongue River, how the proposed rezoning of Ramaco's land fits the county's comprehensive plan and the widespread support for the project in the community, including many adjacent landowners and neighbors.

Ramaco is asking the county to rezone about 114 acres of land in the Acme area from agricultural to I-2 light industrial. Tony Wendtland, Sheridan attorney who's representing Ramaco in the rezone request, said the area has been designated for industrial use according to a map dating back to 2009.

The rezone has been recommended for approval by the county planning and zoning commission and will go before county commissioners for action on March 6.
