Door County board tables wind energy ordinance

Posted on December 26, 2007. Filed under: Wind |


From an article by Deb Fitzgerald in the Door County Advocate:

The Door County Board of Supervisors tabled until January a proposed, countywide wind energy ordinance that would regulate all wind turbines exceeding 170 feet.

The supervisors said they wanted the extra month to study the ordinance recommended by the Resource Planning Committee Dec. 13.

The decision to table the issue came after an earlier vote when the supervisors shot down the ordinance.

Later in the meeting, the supervisors brought the ordinance back up for reconsideration, which led to the vote to table the ordinance until January.

The issues of contention for the supervisors who voted to table the ordinance were the noise maximums and the setback requirements.

They are the same issues that the town of Clay Banks has objected to throughout the county’s process of revising a current wind energy ordinance that�s been on the books since 2001.
