Several text amendment revisions to the Wind Energy Ordinance were proposed, once again, by the opposition of the potential wind farm in DeWitt County at tonight's (Tuesday night's) Land Use Committee meeting.
 
Chris Shaffer went before the board to propose revisions such as proper notice to residents, citing the McLean County wind farm projects, noise level compliance, and property values.
 
 
Jim Griffin, the legal counsel for Tradewind Energy, spoke to these proposed amendments, indicating that the wind ordinances were updated last year and do not need to be amended.
 
 
The Land Use Committee voted to take the Wind Energy Ordinance to the full board for review.
 
A moratorium was proposed but was not passed.
