City looking for outside help on wind farm

The city is hiring an outside consultant to help them make a decision on the proposed Big Thunder Wind Park.

After a closed-door update on legal and property matters on Monday night, city officials on Tuesday said council has authorized them to engage an expert to review information requested on the project, in particular information relating to the financial data on each turbine and view sheds that illustrate their location.

“The city is being thorough in its due diligence and it is important that we deal with this project in a timely way,” said city manager Tim Commisso in a release.

The $75-million wind farm, which Horizon Wind would like to build on the Nor’Wester Mountain range, has drawn the wrath of Neebing Ward residents who cite property devaluation, threats to endangered species and health concerns as reasons for opposing the project.

Horizon has picked the sites for each of the 18 turbines, but the city has final say on the location. The city has already agreed to lease municipally owned Neebing Township land to Horizon for the project, which now falls under the province’s Green Energy Act.
