Will future industrial wind towers be built by you with no noise regulations?
No towers around your home yet? Then you need to be concerned because they have signed leases in all parts of the county and the Commissioners and Zoning Board are proposing dropping the noise limits entirely on future projects. The public hearing will be on September 12 at 1 p.m. in the courthouse meeting room. Speak up now or you may have your peaceful home destroyed by uncontrolled noise.
The county has already had complaints that the 50 dBa is too loud on current projects, so why are they dropping the noise limits altogether now? Who are they protecting? The residents of Antelope County or the wind developers?
Another line item in the zoning regulations, says they can be built with black blades. Do you want to be surrounded by towers with black blades?
Now is the time to come to the Antelope County Commissioners hearing to express your concerns about industrial wind towers being allowed to be built without noise restrictions being placed on them. Tuesday, September 12, at 1 p.m. at the courthouse.
