NEW BRITAIN – The first step toward developing regulations governing where wind farms can be built begins Oct. 13 with a public forum at the Connecticut Siting Council.

The forum, which will be held at the Siting Council’s headquarters at 10 Franklin Square, is an effort “to get an idea from the public what they think is important,” said Linda Roberts, executive director of the state agency.

“When we actually formulate the regulations, it’s going to be a more formal proceeding like a contested hearing,” Roberts said.

The Siting Council, working in concert with other state agencies has until July 1, 2012 to establish the regulations. The establishment of the regulations was ordered by the legislature through Public Act 11-245, which was approved by lawmakers in July of this year.

The Oct. 13th forum will be held in two shifts, the first from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the second from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
