Law lets Deer Grove rule on wind
Permits within 1.5 miles are prerogative of village board
The Deer Grove Zoning Code permits a request for variance satisfying the test for “prohibited use” by the zoning authorities. Jurisdictional authority for regulating wind farms within 1.5 miles of incorporated Deer Grove belongs to the village, not Whiteside County.
I suggest an errant precedent in which Lee County approved permits for turbines within 1.5 miles of Compton and West Brooklyn does not set an acceptable standard to follow in Deer Grove’s case.
For Whiteside County to approve two permits within 1.5 miles of Deer Grove is an abuse of jurisdictional authority by encroaching on the jurisdictional authority statutorily granted to Deer Grove.
