I am writing to express my strong support for the wind farms being developed in Christian County. I believe that they are a unique economic opportunity for our county that cannot be passed up on.
I spent time in my life as a county board member and the county board chairman. Our county is losing population and jobs, and we need to find new ways to fund our schools, maintain a steady tax base, and have jobs for people to work. I believe the wind farms being discussed are a new way that we can do that.
You have free articles remaining.
I hope that the ordinance committee and the entire board acts with foresight when deciding the fate of these projects. Blocking the wind farms from being developed with overly restrictive regulations or setbacks would be a costly decision for our county, our schools, and our taxpayers.
