In Fayette County, a decision to move forward on a plan for a separate solar farm in Perry Township has been continued for a meeting now scheduled for February 8th.
According to Fayette County zoning board member Greg McCune, “Due to the absence of a board member, the board voted to do a continuation of the meeting until February 8th. The board stated they wanted all board members there for the vote.”
The Fayette County Board of Zoning Appeals will meet February 8th at 7pm to consider granting a conditional use permit for the “Fayette Solar Farm”.
National Grid Renewables is proposing the project, which if approved, they would design and operate on 435 acres of land between Bonner, Barrett and Beatty Roads and the Highland County line.
Monday night’s 7pm Fayette County Zoning Board meeting will be held at the Union Township building at 1505 Old State Route 38 near Washington CH.
