Wind turbine issue tabled until May 19

By on May 16, 2010

SUGAR GROVE—The Sugar Grove Plan Commission on May 6 postponed talks concerning a proposed ordinance that would allow for a wind turbine until its next meeting on Wednesday, May 19. The Plan Commission wants to further review paperwork regarding the issue.

The 100-foot tower, which Sugar Grove Township wants to build at the road and bridge building on Main Street, exceeds the height limit outlined in the village’s draft zoning ordinance regulating wind devices. The village originally placed a moratorium on electricity-generating wind devices last July, and then renewed the moratorium in December. The current moratorium expires June 1.
