Culver's Parks and Recreations board voted to formally express its opposition to placement of more than 60 45-story wind turbines in an area including land affecting the Culver-Lake Maxinkuckee community, at the board's monthly meeting August 3.
The decision grew from discussion of a then-upcoming "town hall" style meeting at the Culver Elementary School August 13. Board member Patty Stallings said the company proposing to place the turbines, Next Era Energy of Florida, has visited Culver's Lions and Kiwanis Clubs and Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council.
