Tipton BZA made correct decision  

Credit:  Kokomo Tribune | August 5, 2013 | kokomotribune.com ~~

I would like to applaud members of the Tipton County BZA for refusing to hear juwi Wind’s ridiculous request for modification of the BZA’s March 21 decision regarding industrial wind turbine setbacks. After nearly nine hours of public testimony, the BZA clearly stated in March that industrial wind turbines be placed 1,500 feet from property lines.

No industry should be allowed to keep coming back to an authoritative body such as the BZA to continuously ask for modifications until they get what they want. Much like a 5-year-old child who keeps whining for a toy, at some point you have to just say no. Granting juwi’s request would have set a terrible precedent for future conditional use permits. Not a soul would ever take no for an answer.

It is unfathomable to think that select county officials wanted to rehash nine hours of public testimony that previously took place in March. What else could possibly be gained from that?

If an industrial wind farm cannot be safely placed amongst residents, it needn’t be there. Thank you, Tipton County BZA, for an important victory for common sense.
