Wind farm controversy to be topic of Aug. 13 meeting
A “town hall” style meeting has been announced by a group called Concerned Property Owners of Southern Marshall County, scheduled for Saturday, August 13, starting at 10 a.m. at the Uptown Cinema on Lake Shore Drive in Culver.
The topic is the recently much-discussed (and debated) proposed placement of more than 60 wind turbines in Marshall and Fulton Counties by Florida-based company Nextera Energy, many visibile from Culver’s town park and other shores. The matter has been controversial due to side effects some claim the turbines can produce in human and animal health, among other concerns, though the company has refuted such suggestions in its presentations.
The group’s efforts have been promoted a mass postal mailing to area residents, as well as a blog the group has set up, www.marshallcountyIN-windfarm.blogspot.com.
The public is invited to the meeting.
