DeKalb County wind ordinance  

Credit:  The Journal Gazette | January 21, 2013 | www.jg.net ~~

The Concerned Citizens of DeKalb County, a group concerned about a proposed wind farm, is holding a public meeting today about the proposal and the county’s wind ordinance.

County officials wisely began to develop a wind energy ordinance long before Eosol America proposed building a 125-turbine wind farm in DeKalb County. The ordinance, which governs the location of turbines, setbacks from property lines and buildings, and road rights and easements, was adopted in 2011. But the county commissioners have made adjustments since then. On Jan. 14, the commissioners approved changes to the setbacks in the ordinance. The changes then go to the DeKalb County Plan Commission for a recommendation and then back to the commissioners for a final vote – expected to take place in late February.
