That is what the Rockford Area Economic Development Council is urging to help save the project.
This past Friday, the council unveiled a website for community groups and leaders to log on to and submit a letter of support for the project. The website is www.welcometrimrite.com.
The council says so far they have had over 300 hits over the weekend and are planning to add a frequently asked question section this week.
Trim-Rite planned to build a pork processing plant and slaughterhouse on Montague Road in Winnebago County, but within the last week county leaders learned that Trim-Rite is now considering sites in DeKalb and Stephenson County and one in Rochelle.
