Magnolia tables wind ordinance discussion  

The Town of Magnolia Planning and Zoning Board voted 5-0 tonight to table its discussion on a draft ordinance that would regulate wind turbines.

More than 30 people turned out for the meeting, which included a public hearing on the draft ordinance.

The draft ordinance proposes wind turbines be placed at least a one-half mile from homes and other inhabited structures and at least 1,000 feet from property lines. The draft was copied almost entirely from the Town of Union Wind Study Committee’s draft ordinance.

The board again will discuss the issue at its May 8 meeting. A moratorium on wind energy systems remains in place until July.
