The commissioners have stated on record that they support the decision of the Appeals Board to approve the placement of 17 wind turbines on Dan’s Mountain. The project was initially denied by the Allegany County Board of Zoning Appeals in 2015, however, through an appeals process, a state court sent the case back to Allegany County in 2019.
