Residents seek action on moratorium for wind turbines

CORUNNA – About 40 people packed the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners’ chambers Monday to voice their concerns over the Maple Rapids Wind project, a wind turbine operation in the process of being developed in the county by a Virginia-based company.

Many of those in attendance – including residents of Middlebury, Owosso, Fairfield and Rush townships, where the turbines are planned – asked commissioners to put in place a moratorium on wind turbine operations in the county to provide time for the county board to review the process. No applications would be taken during the moratorium.
