Wind proposal sent for review  

UNION TWP. – A zoning regulations amendment proposal regarding wind energy structures will be sent from the township zoning commission to a review board after a year of debate about the document.

The township zoning commission voted Wednesday to have the Logan-Union-Champaign Regional Planning Commission – an East Liberty-based advisory group – review the proposal and make recommendations back to the commission.

Union Neighbors United, a group of township residents concerned about the placement of wind turbines, resubmitted an alternate amendment proposal to the commission, which the commission decided to send to the LUC for review as well.

The commission must have a public hearing on the proposals within 40 days of its submission, which was scheduled for 7 p.m. Dec. 17 in the Champaign County Community Center auditorium.
