Wind farm public hearing set  

A public hearing is set for later this month regarding the Streator Cayuga Ridge South Wind Project in Livingston County.

The hearing begins at 7 p.m. Monday, April 28, in the Pontiac Township High School auditorium, 1100 E. Indiana Ave., Pontiac. Depending on the amount of public feedback, the hearing may be continued to Tuesday, April 29, and Wednesday, April 30, at the same location.

The proposed Streator Cayuga Ridge wind farm calls for as many as 450 wind turbines to be erected across 46,000 acres stretching from a point east of Streator and south of Ransom down to about six miles north of Pontiac, west of Odell near Interstate 55. The overall project is made up of three smaller projects – one involving about 75 wind turbines in southern La Salle County, one involving up to 200 wind turbines in northern Livingston County and one involving 175 wind turbines in southern Livingston County. The public hearing addresses the southern Livingston County portion of the project, generally located between Odell and Emington in Odell and Union townships.

The public hearing is being hosted by the Livingston County Zoning Board of Appeals. Location maps and other information pertaining to the project application can be viewed at the Livingston County Clerk’s office at the Livingston County Courthouse, the Pontiac Public Library, Odell Village Hall, Odell State Bank, Dwight Village Hall and the Livingston County Regional Planning Commission Office.
