Planning and Zoning Commission turns attention to windmills

July 14, 2011

BLACKFOOT — Planning and Zoning (P&Z) commissioners started their discussion on wind turbines in the Proposed Code Revisions Final Draft.
The conversation split into two camps—one supporting the business aspect of wind, the other questioning the proximity to townships.
"This is a business," said commissioner Lee Hammett. "Let the free enterprise system take care of it. If the cost of electricity goes up because of [wind turbines], profitability would be eliminated.
"We cannot legislate view," Hammett said. "We can legislate safety but we cannot pick a side on view."
