PAXTON, IL. (ECWd) –
Video of the Ford County Zoning Board of Appeals Hearing held on October 3, 2018. It is approximately 4 hours in length and the board recessed until October 25th at 7:00 p.m. to continue the Hearing. View the above photo full size (here).
Some things noteworthy:
- a resident complained about all “the outsiders” assisting those wanting setbacks from the property lines and larger overall setbacks. Immediately following his comment were 8 “outsiders” providing testimony in favor of the wind turbine industry’s relaxed rules. It might be assumed these people were paid for their testimony as they mostly work for the wind industry.
- some testimony from wind industry proponents dealt with financial aspects of the ZBA hearing results, which should never be considered in determining zoning changes.
The video is in three parts:
