Wind farm sparks Sparta debate 

Sparta area residents are weighing in on whether a wind farm should be built near their community.

The company Invenergy has applied for a conditional use permit in the towns of Ridgeville and Wells to build wind turbines. Monday the Monroe County Planning and Zoning Committee held a public hearing on the issue. Residents on both sides of the issue made their opinions clear.

Those for the turbines say they will create energy in an environmentally friendly way and create about $60,000 for the county. Those against it say a wind farm would be too noisy and may even create health problems for residents.

Committee members say they are taking all of the feedback into account before any decisions are made. “The next step is to reveiw all the information,” says James Kuhn, Monroe County Zoning Committee Chairman. “And then, as someone suggested, we may go out and look (at land for a possible site). It depends on just what may be the particular sites.”

A public hearing on a possible wind farm will be held Monday, April 9 for residents in the Town of Wells.
