Greeley city officials say Leprino Foods has submitted plans to begin building a new cheese factory.
Greeley Community Development Director Becky Safarik says Leprino submitted its construction plans this week.
Denver-based Leprino said in 2008 that it would build a cheese plant in Greeley on the site of the former Western Sugar processing plant. The plant is expected to require 4 million pounds of milk a day at first and 7 million pounds a day at full operation.
City officials will review the company's plans and consider any last-minute engineering details before issuing building permits. The process typically takes two weeks.
