Mural with a message: Downtown building may serve as anti-wind headquarters

A local grassroots group opposing the development of an industrial wind farm in Crawford County soon may have a headquarters downtown.

A vacant building at 101 S. Sandusky Ave. – formerly a Huntington Bank branch – has been rented by a member of Crawford Anti-Wind/Crawford Neighbors United PAC, Sandy Shields, another member, said Monday. It has been offered for use as a headquarters for the group as it gears up for an expected ballot battle this fall.

Steve Hall, treasurer of Crawford Neighbors United, said members of the organization planned to decide whether to use the building as a headquarters at a Tuesday evening meeting.

In the meantime, Shields has been painting anti-wind murals on windows of the building facing Washington Square.

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 a year ago, wind farm supporters had until June 6 to submit petitions signed by 1,181 registered voters to force a November referendum vote on the issue, which could overturn the commissioners’ action.

Honey Creek Action – a political action committee supported by Apex – submitted petitions signed by 2,604 people. Those signatures are in the process of being verified by the Crawford County Board of Elections. The board will vote on whether to certify the petitions at its August meeting.

Anticipating that a ballot issue will be certified, members of Crawford Anti-Wind formed a political action committee, Crawford Neighbors United, earlier this month.
