Gallatin County Commissioner Joe Skinner addressed a roomful of Churchill-area farmers and ranchers Saturday morning regarding the planning process taking place around the Dutch agricultural community.

The Gallatin County Planning Department and the Amsterdam Rural Fire District, as well as a steering committee of roughly 24 residents, have been meeting since last summer to discuss writing a neighborhood plan, planner Warren Vaughan said. Participants have outlined such infrastructure as schools, roads, sewer and schools and now are in the process of identifying community needs.
