Wind Energy Projects

Public Comment and Contact Announcement

On August 20, 2014, an application was submitted to Livingston County for a wind energy conversion system (WECS) pursuant to Livingston County’s Wind Ordinance. It is anticipated that a hearing will be held by the Livingston County Zoning Board of Appeals, who will make a report to the County Board that will include findings of fact and a recommendation as to whether the County Board should deny or grant the application, or grant them subject to conditions. All members of the public interested in the issue are encouraged to attend the Zoning Board of Appeals hearings and present evidence concerning their position.

County Board members will ultimately make a legislative decision concerning the WCES application after the Zoning Board of Appeals process concludes. Therefore, County Board members are advised by counsel that they should not make any public comments which explicitly endorse or reject any WECS application pending before the Zoning Board of Appeals.

The advice given to County Board members regarding discussing the pending application also extends to members of the Zoning Board of Appeals.

It is our intent to keep this page updated throughout the process with everything from anticipated times, to meeting dates, to information presented during the hearings.  If you have suggestions regarding this page and its content, please contact the County Board Office at 815-844-6378 or email email hidden; JavaScript is required.
