A small investment now can potentially pay big dividends later. At least that’s the attitude Moffat County Tourism Association Director Marilynn Hill has as she and the MCTA Board near the launch of an in-depth marketing survey of the county.

Craig resident Marilynn Hill has developed an idea she thinks could help pull local businesses out of the current economic slump and provide the area a much-needed lift from tough circumstances. Hill, also the Moffat County Tourism Association director, said Monday that she and others have begun looking into starting a new company that would bring fresh ideas and products into the area. That project comes in the form of 12 large-scale commercial greenhouses as part of a hydroponically-grown food business she is calling Planet Yampa.
