Public hearings set for Livingston County wind farm


Livingston County residents will get their say regarding a proposed wind farm next month at a meeting of the county’s Zoning Board of Appeals.

The ZBA has scheduled hearings Nov. 17, 18 and 19 on a special-use permit application from Invenergy, an energy development company based in Chicago. The first meeting will be at 6 p.m. Nov. 17 at Pontiac Township High School. Details of subsequent meetings will be announced later.

The firm hopes to add 136 turbines scattered over 30,000 acres of farmland in the southeastern portion of the county.
