Comment period extended on Crocker wind farm plan

Citizens will have more time to comment on the draft environmental assessment for Crocker Wind Farm proposed in Clark County, according to an announcement Monday by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The two-week extension means comments will be accepted until May 8. The wind farm is a wholly owned subsidiary of Geronimo Energy.

The proposal would place 14 turbines, associated infrastructure, and 14 transmission poles on USFWS grassland easements in the area. The federal agency opened a 30-day comment period when the draft environmental assessment was released.
