Ridgeline Energy appeals project denial

BONNEVILLE COUNTY, Idaho – Ridgeline Energy is appealing a decision made by the Bonneville County Planning and Zoning Commission after their proposal was shot down last week.

The appeal was submitted Wednesday afternoon at the Bonneville County Courthouse.

Ridgeline Energy Project Manager Randy Gardner said the merit of the application stands strong and they are taking it to the commissioners to have a second look.

“As we reviewed what happened at the Planning and Zoning meeting, we feel confident they were more concerned about the ordinance than they were about our application,” said Gardner during a phone interview.

The energy company wants to build 75 wind turbines on the area of Meadow Creek, which is on the north end of the Bonneville County foothills near Ririe.
