Planning Commission continues wind farm regulations meeting to Oct. 13

Posted Sep 18, 2020 10:30 AM

The Reno County Planning Commission listened through around four and a half hours of public comment on Thursday at a meeting on the Kansas State Fairgrounds regarding proposed wind farm regulations.

The parts of the proposed wind farm regulations where they are still trying to get the language worked out include language concerning airstrips and the general setback requirements.

There was some hope by the board that they would get to a final resolution on language on Thursday, but they were given enough information by the public that they had not had before that they did not feel they could make that decision without studying what was given to them.

The public comment portion of the meeting on the regulations was closed toward the end of the Thursday event, but the board did come to a consensus to continue the meeting to Oct. 13 at 4:30 p.m. at the Public Works office in South Hutchinson for further discussion.

There will not be public comment on that date as the public comment portion was closed Thursday night. The meeting will be made publicly available on YouTube that day, as there is limited seating at the Public Works office.
