Colorado Sugar Beet Initiative
The Sugar Beet Factory Initiative identified twenty-two former sugar beet plants as having operated in Colorado at one time or another in the previous century. This collaborative effort, funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency, engages government, non-profits, and private industry to address redevelopment issues facing sugar beet factory communities in Colorado. Stakeholder communities serving as models impacted by a disappearing sugar beet industry include: Greeley, Eaton, Fort Morgan, and Longmont.
