Public hearings on windmills set for Monday and Tuesday

Two public hearings will be held in the Henry County Courthouse in Cambridge to discuss issues with wind farms proposed by Bishop Hill Energy, LLC, an Invenergy entity.

One meeting will be held 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18 by the Henry County Planning Committee and one will be 7 p.m. Jan. 19 by the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Both meetings are being held in Room 102J, to review zoning applications by Bishop Hill Energy, LLC, who is requesting an amendment to remove “Illinois Historic Preservation Office requirements including those for protection of the Village of Bishop Hill.”

Bishop Hill Energy, LLC will also ask to add the following language: “Applicant shall consult with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency (IHPA) regarding the effect of the project on the Village of Bishop Hill” in six townships, including Galva, Weller, Clover, Burns, Cambridge and Andover.”
