Wind-energy company looking at Elwood area

DUCK CREEK TOWNSHIP — A wind-energy company is considering a location northeast of Elwood for a wind farm.

Madison County Planning Director Cory Wilson said he has drafted a wind ordinance that will come before the Madison County Planning Commission at 9 a.m. on Feb. 10.

In part, the ordinance would allow the construction of a 200-foot tower to test wind speeds at several elevations over two years. Wilson said the ordinance is based on one written by officials in Benton County, where a wind farm created around 600 jobs.

The proposed test area is near the intersection of Indiana 13 and County Road 1400 North in Duck Creek Township.

Terri Austin, Jack Lutz and Scott Reske have been invited to attend. The meeting is open to the public, and written questions will be taken from the audience.

Library Director Sarah Later said those interested in learning about changes happening at the library as a result of tax caps should attend.
