The revised ordinance will require new turbines to be built at a greater distance from non-participating property owners. This distance will be based on the turbine's rotor diameter.
The current ordinance requires turbines be built at least 1,500 feet from houses of non-participating property owners. The revision will change the requirement to a distance that is at least twelve times the rotor diameter from a non-participant's house and 1,500 feet from their property line. The board will discuss the revision at its next meeting Tuesday.
