Reader concerned with zoning plan  

Credit:  Journal Review | June 8, 2019 | www.journalreview.com ~~

The plan commission voted May 29 to approve the zoning ordinance, which will be forwarded to county commissioners.

I am opposed to industrial wind turbines. I appreciate the wording in the proposed zoning ordinance regarding setback distances from industrial wind turbines. These setbacks are 2,640 feet from non-participating property owners’ property lines, and 1 mile from schools and municipalities. (These setbacks could be much greater to insure health and safety.) These setback distances should never be compromised. There should be no exceptions to these setbacks.

Let me say that I would not take a million dollars to have one industrial wind turbine on my property. First of all, I would never do that to my neighbors. Wind turbines cause all kinds of health problems. They cause great losses in property values. They have been known to interfere with cell phones, television reception and weather radar. They could likely interfere with helicopter Lifeline services, as well as crop dusting. They would cause many people to move out of our county.

These things are not “green energy.” They kill eagles, hawks, bats, and other wild life.

They are not “earth friendly” when you consider the production of all the steel, concrete and other materials going into the construction of these monstrosities.

Well more than 1,700 Montgomery County residents have signed the no wind petition, and there are probably thousands more who agree with us, but have not signed the petition.

I encourage everyone to do their own research to learn the truth about all of this. You can begin your research at the www.NoWindMoCo.com website.
