Reading wind farm decision postponed

The vote on the proposed Reading wind farm by the Lyon County Commission was postponed on Thursday.

The Lyon County Commission voted to send the proposal for a conditional use permit back to the Lyon County Planning and Appeals Board. Commissioners voted to give the planning board 45 days to re-examine and research the setback rules requiring the wind turbines be placed 1,640 feet from any property line.

“I think we need to go back and re-establish … and research the setbacks,” Commissioner Rollie Martin said. “There’s two setbacks; there’s one for residents and there is one for property lines and I believe the one for property lines was put in without enough research or education or facts to allow us to move forward.

“Until we have all those – or the planning board reconsiders this – and becomes more educational to us and makes their recommendation in 45 days, I think we need the time to re-evaluate what this is going to do and if we’re actually going to do it.”

A full story on the meeting will be in Friday’s Gazette.
