State of Idaho Department of Environmental Quality
Green Mountain Strategies owner, Robin Tindall, represented the State of Idaho Department of Environmental Quality in complex negotiations as part of a large Rails-to-Trails conversion project. The 72 mile trail runs through many towns, a Superfund site, and the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation, and had significant environmental issues that needed to be addressed. Stakeholders involved in the negotiations and settlement action that funded the conversion included Union Pacific Railroad, The Coeur d’Alene Tribe, the U.S. Department of Justice, The State of Idaho Department of Fish and Wildlife, USEPA, and several law firms.
