Pioneer wind parks on hold pending litigation  

Credit:  By: Karen Snyder kowb1290.com ~~

The Northern Laramie Range Alliance has ridden their resistance to a 66 turbine wind farm for the mountains south of Glenrock to the Wyoming Supreme Court.

Pioneer Wind Park is a two part project from Wasatch Wind out of Utah. The company had obtained approvals and expected to begin construction this spring, but according to Wasatch Wind Spokesperson Michelle Stevens, they’ll wait for the litigation to play out. In the mean time, she says they want to let people know what’s going on.

“People have contacted us. They would like to work on the construction side of the project. They would like us to hire their company for subcontracting, engineering, cement. There’s been a lot of interest by people who want to work on the project.”

Appeals of decisions by the Converse County Commission and the Industrial Siting Council approving the projects now sit with the Wyoming Supreme Court.

The Northern Laramie Range Alliance is a group of area landowners who oppose the wind projects out of concern for property devaluation and loss of view shed, amongst other concerns.
