Grundy Co. Board opposes Senate Bill 1602

The Grundy County Board last week approved a resolution opposing Senate Bill 1602. Grundy County Land Use Director Heidi Miller explains.

Senate Bill 1602 was filed on February 26th and seeks to mandate specific timelines and other requirements for commercial wind energy facilities.

The bill mandates substantive changes including setbacks requirements, blade tip height limitations and several others.

In the resolution, the county board said the legislation would undermine local zoning authority.
