At the Planning Commission meeting Aug. 15, Mr. Carroll Cohee stated he didn’t agree with the 1,500-foot setback from every property line for wind turbine placement because juwi couldn’t build any if we held them to 1,500 feet. This was Mr. Cohee’s original motion in March.
Was his motion done without thought? When many lives and property values were at stake, maybe he should have taken more time to think about what he wanted to say!
Juwi, on Aug. 16, said it would accept the 1,500-foot setback, if we would drop the property value guarantee – another attempt at getting the BZA to change its motion.
Mr. Cohee also said we needed the wind companies for financial support in Tipton County. Doesn’t Mr. Cohee (as a former Chrysler employee) feel that Chrysler opening the Tipton plant in 2015 will draw enough tax income into Tipton County?
Without wind turbines, it’s possible the county will have people moving here and further create a larger tax base.
Mr. Cohee should start listening to the majority instead of the wind turbine company propaganda!
