Glenmore officials look at wind turbine permits  

GLENMORE – The town’s Plan Commission will hear a request for a conditional-use permit from a company that wants to place seven wind turbines on two town properties.

The request is being made by Thomas Mattson on behalf of Prelude LLC who wants to construct seven turbines on several parcels of land on Morrison and School roads. The land is owned by two families.

This request comes on the heels of a request from Emerging Energies/Shirley Wind LLC of Hubertus for a 30-year conditional-use permit to construct eight turbines on land owned by four families.

The Town Board is expected to vote on that measure on March 26.

At the public hearing for the Emerging Energies project, residents expressed concern about property values, noise pollution and liability. At a March 5 meeting, conditions were brought up – some of which could become the terms of the permit – including payments to both the town and residents who live within a half-mile of the turbines, regular inspections, review of engineering schematics and a way for residents to immediately submit complaints.
