It is the final stretch of hearings and votes for a proposed wind farm in the northwest corner of DeWitt County.


The past few weeks, the DeWitt County Zoning Board of Appeals has been hearing evidence and testimony for the Tradewind Energy Alta Farms II wind project. DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg indicates the final hearing Friday should be the end of the hearings and anticipates the ZBA voting sometime in March.



Newberg indicates, once the proposal passes through the ZBA and reaches the County Board, they plan to schedule a special meeting just for the vote of the wind farm, likely to take place at a special location for the anticipated interest in the vote.



Newberg points out, when the County Board takes up the issue, there will be no new testimony or evidence that can be considered.
