Pratt Kansas ~ Unfavorable Ordinance Rewritten

BP Wind Energy Has Refiled Its Request To Build A Wind Farm.

Karl Pierce, director for business development, with BP Wind Energy, reported that he had filed an application for a special use permit to build a wind energy project in the southeast part of the county.
After several hearings during the winter and early spring, BP withdrew its application, citing an ordinance that the company said was not favorable to development.
The ordinance has been rewritten so a potential developer can complete required studies in stages, instead of all being done up front.
Pierce said he has signed contracts with 85 landowners, and maps are available at the office of Tim Branscom, zoning director, showing where the company can and cannot build.
The Planning and Zoning Board will hold a public hearing on the proposal Aug. 19.
