The City Council Thursday night agreed to take up the proposed wind turbine for Winter Island. It referred the project for review to its subcommittee on public health, safety and environment.

The city’s Renewable Energy Task Force and the Park and Recreation Commission have held public hearings on the proposed wind turbine and the Winter Island Master Plan. At those hearings, there was strong support and opposition voiced about the proposed turbine.

Councilor at Large Joan Lovely said she had read the report by Meridian Associates on the wind turbine and admitted she needed to talk with experts to understand the complex issues involved in siting a turbine.

She said she wanted to talk with the manufacturers to determine the set backs required from a wind turbine for houses and buildings.

There was no date set for the subcommittee’s meeting on the wind turbine.
