Chilton meetings to deal with wind farm issues  

A group of people concerned about what three wind farm projects could mean for Calumet County will hold an information forum Wednesday at the Engler Center for the Performing Arts.

The Engler Center is located at 530 W. Main St. The event begins at 7 p.m.

Thursday at 1 p.m., the Calumet County Planning and Zoning Committee will consider requests to modify its wind energy ordinance.

Guest speakers at Wednesday’s forum include Nina Pierpont, a pediatrician from New York state, who has studied the effects of wind turbines on public health; and Richard Bolton, a physicist from New York, who has studied the environmental impacts associated with turbines.

Glenn Stoddard, an attorney who specializes in environmental and land use law, is also expected.

Average wind speeds of 13 to 14 mph at 110 feet make Calumet County one of the state’s most desirable locations for wind farms.

Two wind developers plan three projects in the towns of Stockbridge, Brothertown, Chilton and Rantoul. They envision using two-megawatt turbines, which stand more than 400 feet tall.

A group of property owners has filed suit against the county, alleging its wind utility ordinance is unconstitutional.
