Bureau County Wind Farm Being Challenged

Posted by wlpo on July 5, 2011

A group of landowners living around a proposed wind farm in Bureau County are turning to the court to stop the project.

A lawsuit was filed last week by 37 adjacent landowners to the proposed 150-turbine Walnut Ridge wind farm in northwest Bureau County.  The lengthy lawsuit claims the Bureau County Board didn’t have authority to grant conditional use permits to the developer in 2008.  The suit also claims the county board didn’t have the right to approve permit extensions earlier this year.

Landowners suing say they’re trying to stop the project and aren’t going after money.
