The Christian County Zoning Board of Appeals met to continue their hearing on the text amendments concerning wind turbines. Among the focus on Wednesday night’s meeting, severe weather, setbacks, shadow flicker, and codes.
Jim Griffiths, Attorney for City of Roses Wind Energy was asked about what the standard procedure is during storms and whether or not the Lincoln radar would be affected by the turbines. Griffiths said that it wouldn’t affect it.
The board discussed heights and setbacks and talked about setback from districts whether they are incorporated or corporated.
Shadow flicker was another big topic at the meeting and Griffiths was asked about how to adjust to control shadow flicker.
ZBA chairman Steve Sipes asked whether or not shadow flicker was controlled by the blades or the direction that the turbines faced. Griffiths said it was part of the turbine location design.
The next ZBA meeting is slated for Thursday evening.
