Cleburne Commission Avoids Vote To Delay Wind Farms

The Cleburne County Commission on Monday declined to vote on a proposal that would have forced its members to decide whether to close a road for a proposed wind turbine project on Turkey Heaven Mountain, according to The Anniston-Star Newspaper.

The proposal would have also directed Chairman Ryan Robertson to write a letter to the governor and local legislators to ask for a three-year moratorium on wind energy projects in the state.
Cleburne County residents concerned about the potential development of a wind turbine farm on the mountain had urged the moratorium so that studies on the land and physical health concerns allegedly related to previously erected wind turbine farms could be conducted.
