Union Twp. to vote on wind turbine proposals  

Union Township trustees will have two issues to vote on at the Jan. 17 public hearing concerning wind turbine proposals. The meeting will be at 7 p.m in the Champaign County Community Center.

Union Township Trustee President Doug Hurst said there will be no limit to the number of people who can speak, but each speaker will be limited to five minutes.

According to Champaign County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Scott Schockling, the first issue is to vote on the Union Township Zoning Commission’s recommendation to accept wind turbine regulations crafted by the zoning commission.

The second issue is to vote on the zoning commission’s recommendation to reject wind turbine regulations crafted by Union Neighbors United.

To approve a recommendation from the zoning commission takes one positive vote. To reject a recommendation of the zoning commission takes a unanimous vote, according to Schockling.

If either set of regulations is put into law, Union Township residents will have a 30-day window to file a petition in court against the regulations, said Schockling.

Hurst said regulations can be reviewed and revised as long as revisions are recommended by the zoning commission.

The trustees are Hurst, Jim Virts and Howard Peters.
