(Monday, March 12th) New Philadelphia, Ohio – Regulations for wind turbines is now in the hands of the New Philadelphia Zoning and Annexation Committee to talk about legislation details.

Mayor Joel Day explains that previously, the planning commission approved recommended wind turbine guidelines.

“Basically, what it does is it would restrict the construction of future wind turbines to just industrial areas in the city. There would have to be a fall zone, there would have to be noise studies, and a number of other technical specification in order to get a building permit.”

The first committee meeting for legislation discussion is Monday, March 12th at 6:45pm in council chambers.
