Champaign Co., IL. (ECWd) –
The Champaign County Zoning Board held a hearing last night on suggested changes to the county wind farm zoning ordinance.
One of the changes recommended was to eliminate any height restrictions on wind turbines.
Currently, it is set at a maximum of 500 feet, but the zoning administrator has recommended unlimited height restrictions, while at the same time suggesting nobody has asked for the change, just something he wanted to change.
During the hearing, they continually interrupted speakers by claiming their speech was not directed at the text changes to the ordinance.
