Goodhue Wind Truth files motion to re-enter appeals process

ST. PAUL – Goodhue Wind Truth filed a motion Wednesday at the Minnesota Court of Appeals seeking the right to continue challenging the site permit issued for the controversial AWA Goodhue wind project near Zumbrota. The citizen group had been booted from the process last week over a mailing mistake.

Carol Overland, a Red Wing attorney representing Goodhue County organic dairy farmers Bruce and Marie McNamara, says she hand-delivered the 97-page motion to the St. Paul courthouse Wednesday afternoon. In it she argues that her clients should be allowed to participate in the appeal as an intervener – which grants lesser power than a full party – during the Coalition for Sensible Siting’s appeal, which Overland describes as having “aligned” interests “but not identical in perspective.”

Both opposition groups comprise local citizens who live within the 32,000-acre project footprint and oppose the $180 million wind development, which would be the first in Goodhue County.

Read Friday’s print edition to learn about factors surrounding the possible approval of the motion.
