Wind meeting


Written by Marie van Ryssel

The Ontario Municipal Board is holding a public pre-hearing in Saugeen Shores today for the Canadian Auto Workers’ proposed wind turbine.

Town Clerk Linda White says the CAW wants to put a wind turbine on their property with a height that exceeds what the municipality’s zoning by-law allows.

She says the CAW wants the proposed wind turbine to be 75 metres high with 25 metre-long blades therefore the overall height would be 1-hundred metres.

White says the OMB pre-hearing will be held in the Saugeen Shores Council Chambers at 11 o’clock in the morning.

She adds members of the public that want to be a part of the hearing are welcome to attend.

White says the OMB Chairperson will be present at the meeting and will consider if the location and size of the CAW’s proposed wind turbine is appropriate.

She says all parties involved and their solicitors will be at the meeting.

White says another purpose of the pre-hearing is to find out how many parties will be part of the eventual hearing.
