SOUTH HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Reno County Planning Commission will hold the public hearing on the new commercial solar regulations on Thursday, November 9 at 5 p.m. at the Reno County Public Works facility at 600 Scott Boulevard in South Hutchinson. 

The intent at this point is to try to get all testimony in on that Thursday evening, but if there is such a public response that they can't fit everyone in, they could keep the hearing open and have a second potential date on Monday, November 13.

The regular meeting of the Planning Commission in November is on November 16, so they would be able to act on changes at that meeting if they are made.

The Board of County Commissioners has put a moratorium on solar development in the county through the end of the year, with the intent that they would see the final regulations by that time, though they could extend the moratorium if public testimony required enough additional work that it couldn't be finished by year end.
