Golden, IL votes to ban wind turbine construction  

Credit:  by Nora Baldner, www.connecttristates.com 9 December 2010 ~~

GOLDEN, IL – The village of Golden says no to wind turbines.

Village trustees voted Wednesday night to ban turbine construction within a mile and a half of village boundaries.

The vote was close and emotional.

It was 3-2, with one trustee not voting because of a conflict of interest.

The town itself is split between people who want the economic development in Golden, and those who are concerned with property values, blade flicker and unknown impact of turbines.

The vote makes permanent a temporary moratorium on wind energy development trustees approved earlier this month.

There are plans to put in a $300 million wind energy development farm in Adams County.

Companies interested in the area are Acciona Energy North America and Global Winds Harvest.
