Despite local objections, agency reapproves Kittitas County wind fam  

For a second time, a state agency has recommended that the governor approve a Central Washington wind farm despite objections from Kittitas County citizens and officials.

The state Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council had recommended that Gov. Chris Gregoire approve the Kittitas Valley Wind Power Project in March, but Gregoire asked the council to reconsider whether the turbines should be set farther away from landowners.

Neighboring landowners and local officials have argued against the project for five years, saying it will have negative environmental and visual impacts.

The council recommended Tuesday that the governor approve a modified permit, which could increase the distance between turbines and the homes non-participating landowners.

Gregoire has 60 days to approve or reject the revised proposal.
