City ponders wind-power regulations
Published 06/14/2010, The Daily Republic
Private wind-generated power may become a reality in Mitchell someday soon, and the city is trying to stay ahead of the current.
At a meeting this afternoon, the Mitchell Planning and Zoning Commission will review suggested guidelines for wind generation policies sent to cities by the state Municipal League. Right now, there are no city regulations in Mitchell on small, private systems.
“It’s been a topic that we’ve been examining for some time,” said City Planner Neil Putnam.
