Nextera Zoning Hearings, Clinton County, Missouri

Nextera, as Osborn Wind Energy (OWE), submitted an application for a special use permit for wind energy systems to build in Clinton County. Their law firm was Polsinelli. The permit was approved, but they failed to act, required procedural actions were not performed, and the approval expired.

The next time the application was submitted, it was returned as incomplete. Nextera protested the actions of the county’s nine-member planning and zoning (P&Z) commission and filed a lawsuit. Concerned Citizens for the Future of Clinton County (CCFCC), an educational community group, was able to get the commission to recognize the subjects that the OWE easement contracts prohibited from future claims by the land owner. Negotiated sessions between attorneys and the commission resulted. The commission entered into a six-month moratorium. The CCFCC was able to become an interested party, joined to the defense team, and contributed. Nine of the 13 easement effects were agreed to by the attorneys as subjects on which the P&Z commission should have greater education before review of the ordinances proposed or in place.

Shatto Dairy decided to separate from the CCFCC and hired their own attorney to represent their interests. The attorneys for the insurance company of Clinton County, CCFCC, and Shatto Dairy became one team. Expert testimony was to be presented by both sides, and courtroom rules were followed with a court recorder creating both a transcript and video recordings. The P&Z commission was also allowed to cross-examine each witness after the attorneys were done. I believe courtroom rules were followed so a judge in the future might rule on what was admissible during a trial.

The expert testimony provided by Nextera and our group lasted from 6 to 15 hours each session, and hearings were held over several months, continuing until a subject was completed. Nextera brought in their usual team of experts, and the CCFCC brought in nationally recognized experts that were willing to testify. Strictly opinion, I believe our side won eight times and one hearing could be called a draw. The listener will have to decide who is an expert and what position prevailed.

The County decided to ban industrial wind.
