Iroquois County: Wind farm setback disputes continue  

Credit:  By Robert Themer, www.daily-journal.com 11 May 2011 ~~

The Iroquois County Board rejected an attempt Tuesday to reduce the mandatory setback that separates commercial wind turbines from homes and other buildings of nonparticipants in wind farm developments.

Last month, in a 13-11 vote, the board set the limit at 2,000 feet, although the county zoning board of appeals and the board’s own planning and zoning committee both had recommended 1,500 feet.

At Tuesday’s meeting, the board kept the larger setback, voting 11-9 against reducing it to 1,500 feet
