UPDATE: Dan’s Mountain Wind Farm hearing will reconvene next month

October 30th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The Allegany County Board of Zoning Appeals, after three days of testimony on the proposed Dan's Mountain Wind Farm project, voted to reconvene next  month. After hearing from experts on behalf of the applicant for the first two days of hearings, the Allegany County Board of Zoning appeals began hearing testimony on Thursday from citizens and groups for and against the proposed Dans Mountain Wind Farm project.  The hearing has focused on a request from the developer for special exception and variances for the project. The proposed 17-turbine wind farm project has its supporters and detractors. Those favoring the project point to a new revenue stream for the county- while opponents are concerned about the viewshed, noise, electromagnetic interference and other issues. The Board will reconvene and is expected to make a decision on November 13th. No time or location has been determined.
