With the DeWitt County Zoning Board of Appeals voted last week on zoning ordinances for the Commercial Wind Energy Conversion the County Board is expecting to receive recommendations from the ZBA next month.  
Chairman of the County Board David Newberg says it was a long week of discussion that will eventually move onto the County Board's shoulders.


Other proposed changes the ZBA is still considering include lowering the acceptable noise level limit from a turbine from 50 decibels to 37 decibels, setting a standard for shadow flicker caused when rotating blades cast moving shadows on the ground and mandating an analysis verifying turbines will not interfere with public communication.
