County residents propose a wind energy moratorium

Residents of Albany County and Laramie business owners gathered at the county Planning and Zoning Commission Board meeting Wednesday to encourage the board to vote for a moratorium on wind energy applications in Albany County.

The purpose of the moratorium, as expressed by the residents, is to give the county a chance to evaluate and revise its wind energy regulations. The matter of wind regulations arose as residents found out about the Rail Tie Wind Project.
