County officials tweak wind ordinance

After more than a year of debating, researching and modifying, Montgomery County Commissioners approved an amendment to the county’s ordinance regulating noise levels of wind turbines. The measure passed 3-0 Monday before a packed meeting room at Montgomery County Courthouse. “This is an improvement from what we had in 2009,” commission president Jim Fulwider said. “I don’t see how it’s not a step in the right direction. I think we did our due diligence and gave this the time to . . . Complete story »

Financial concerns over wind turbine project

I’ll confine my comments to the recent article “Turbine talks make gust in county” as it relates to financial statements made regarding the local benefits of this project. Some very large amounts were tossed in making it look as though it’s a huge windfall to Jasper County and it’s residents. My question is which of these amounts are truly relevant to the majority of residents who will have to put up with turbine presence for generations to come? Which of . . . Complete story »

Turbine talks make gust in county

Kevon Martis, Director of the Interstate Informed Citizen’s Coalition, Inc., gave a presentation on the potential dangers of wind turbines in the Community Building of the Jasper County Fairgrounds on the night of Monday, June 25. The occasion, part of a series local government discussions held that night, marked the first time that the Jasper County Planning Commission has discussed wind energy. Renewable Energy Systems (RES) is a company notably planning to construct a wind farm in the area. Martis’ . . . Complete story »

Miami Co. wind farm project put ‘on hold’

PERU – A controversial proposed wind project in Miami County is on hold and could be dead after county commissioners Monday said a new wind ordinance requiring a 2,000-foot setback of turbines from property lines would take effect next week. The Miami County Planning and Building Commission in April approved the revised ordinance in response to a proposed wind project by RES, an international renewable energy company, which would bring around 75 turbines to the northern part of the county. . . .

Matters of right and wrong

We all have to decide for ourselves what is right and what is wrong. I believe that there are several things going on in our county that are clearly wrong, and that is why I have chosen to run for public office. One month after the primary election in May, our commissioners passed a new WEC’s Ordinance that governs the use of Industrial Wind Turbines in the county. It was passed unanimously by the commissioners without giving the public a . . . Complete story »

Zoning point/counterpoint

Wind issues were blown away from the Henry County Commissioners’ agenda Wednesday night by concerns over planning commission matters. Terri Roberts, a former zoning administrator, had harsh words for Darrin Jacobs, the one who now holds that title, about the current practices of the commission and a proposal to form a new, authoritative-style of zoning governance. When contacted Thursday by The Courier-Times, Jacobs answered Roberts’ concerns about current practices and said he was no longer pushing for a change to . . . Complete story »

Short-sided local analyses will surely have a long-term negative impact

I’d like to address issues surrounding the recent Wind Energy Conversion Systems (WECS) zoning provisions unanimously passed by our commissioners June 13. Commissioner Cronk was quoted in the June 15 issue of The Courier-Times. “I think it is more restrictive. . . Henry County will have one of the largest setback requirements for wind farms in the state.” These large corporate monstrosities are not “farms,” but rather large scale industrial manufacturing sprawl of the worst kind with nearly 100 industrial . . .

POWER Coalition versus wind projects

A diverse group of organizations has joined forces to oppose the Renewable Energy Systems (RES-Americas) Harvest Wind and White Post wind turbine projects, which are proposed for the Northern Indiana counties of Cass, Miami, Pulaski and Jasper. The mission of the POWER Coalition (Protecting Our land, Water, Environment, and Rights) is to highlight the broad opposition to the current proposal by RES to site up to 558, approximately 660+ foot tall (3.6-4.2MW) industrial wind turbines in Miami, Cass, Fulton, Jasper . . .

Commissioners table wind turbine changes

Commissioners decided that additional information was needed before approving the county’s wind farm ordinance. It’s the latest in a heated issue surrounding the attempted development of wind farms north of Crawfordsville. Montgomery County Commissioners were set to vote Monday on the changes made to the ordinance for noise regulation of wind turbines. Though a mix of supporters and opponents packed the Crawfordsville City Council chambers, where the meeting was moved from the courthouse to accommodate an anticipated larger crowd, mostly . . .

County should stay true to agriculture

Developing public-use facilities with a regional planning degree since the 1980s, I believe wind power is a great thing when placed in correct areas – specifically the American West’s wind corridor or any land area having little current value. Lafayette is a good example, where the city provided land to CityBus that was of no real value to the city. CityBus secured grant funding to install windmills on this land. Now turbines generate wind power to supply CityBus’ administrative office and . . . Complete story »
