Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association is shutting down its power plant in the western Colorado town of Nucla by the end of 2022. In the wake of that decision, Montrose County is focusing on developing new and existing industries to boost an already-flagging economy. KVNF's Chris Marcinek filed this report from the town of Naturita, near Nucla, for the Western Slope Resources Reporting project.
