Sangamon County officials set meetings to discuss wind turbines  

Credit:  The Associated Press, www.sj-r.com 7 February 2012 ~~

Two public meetings scheduled for later this month will give people an opportunity to comment on a potential wind farm in the western part of Sangamon County.

The first meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 715 E. Illinois St. in New Berlin. The second will be held at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 29 in the county board chambers on the second floor of the Sangamon County Building at Ninth and Monroe Streets.

Last month, the Sangamon County Board approved a moratorium on wind turbines so officials could review zoning rules, collect public input and decide if any changes need to be made.

The county’s zoning rules allow a wind turbine to be within 1,000 feet of a house, but for some people, that may be too close.

While no wind farm proposals are in front of the county board now, American Wind Energy Management is planning a wind farm in the western part of the county.
