Permit allows wind turbine to be re-erected 

Credit:  By Dustin Kass, www.winonadailynews.com 15 December 2010 ~~

Winona County commissioners Tuesday approved a conditional-use permit allowing James Jarvis to put back up a wind turbine county officials made him take down in May.

Jarvis was forced to take down the 134-foot-tall turbine at 29049 Fremont Store Road after county staff found he erected the structure without obtaining permits.

The turbine’s height also exceeded the county’s 35-foot limit, necessitating a variance – which was denied in large part because the structure was already standing.

But after discussions with county staff, the county planning commission approved Jarvis’s request for a conditional-use permit last month. The request was then passed on to the county board.
