Greenville citizens object to wind farm
A large number of homeowners in Greenville Township are objecting to the construction of a wind farm in their backyards. These homeowners have submitted a citizens’ petition objecting to the approval of the wind farm construction in Greenville Township to both the Bureau County Board of Zoning Appeals and the Bureau County Board. In addition, the large attendance of Greenville Township homeowners objecting to the wind farm at the Zoning Board hearings is evidence of the strong opposition to the proposed wind farm.
These homeowners are not against reasonable environmental measures. However, they contend these wind turbines and generators will adversely affect the value of their homes and quality of life.
Ten of the 19 proposed turbines would violate Bureau County Zoning ordinances, mostly on being too close to homes, property lines and housing communities like Normandy. The developers have asked for variances to these ordinances. It is curious that developers could not find other spots for these 10 turbines in the thousands of surrounding acres. Homeowners are concerned that putting a 500-foot wind turbine next to a home would have an impact on the property value and the resale potential for that home. Who would want to pay for a home that is surrounded by wind turbines with flashing red lights at night and light flicker during the day?
