Hearing slated on proposal to prohibit turbines  

The Garrett County commissioners will hold a public hearing next Tuesday, June 24, at 10:30 a.m. in their meeting room at the courthouse on a proposal to amend the Deep Creek Watershed Zoning Ordinance.

The proposal was submitted by Nancy-Elizabeth Nimmich, Pleasant Valley, and Barbara Boone, Oakland, to establish “performance zoning” throughout all of Garrett County.

Under the amendment, a new Article 12 would be added to the ordinance that would define and prohibit commercial wind turbine structures. It would also define the territorial jurisdiction of the new article to include all lands in Garrett County except incorporated municipalities.

All interested persons may attend the hearing to voice their views on the subject or submit written testimony to the Garrett County commissioners.
