Honey Creek Action has scheduled two petition-signing events.
The political action committee is seeking to force a referendum vote on whether industrial wind farms will be permitted in Crawford County.
On May 5, Crawford County commissioners passed a resolution blocking wind farm development in all unincorporated areas of the county, effectively barring construction of Honey Creek Wind, Apex Clean Energy’s planned 300-megawatt industrial wind farm.
But under the terms of Senate Bill 52, which became law in July, wind farm supporters have 30 days to submit petitions forcing a November referendum vote on the issue, which could overturn the commissioners’ action. The deadline to file petitions with the required 1,182 signatures is Monday, June 6.
The petition-signing events have been scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 4, both at at Liberty Township Hall, 4628 Liberty St., Sulphur Springs.
