Key said the county ordinance allows a wind turbine 1,000 feet from the nearest corner of a structure, and the group wants to see the setback requirement at a half-mile from the property line.
The Prairie Breeze Wind Farm is using a setback of 1,250 feet, which is identical to the setback on the Wildcat Wind Farm.
John West said the group has hired an attorney who worked to stop proposed wind farms in three other Indiana counties.
Fort Wayne attorney Patrick Hess will be working with the citizens group to put together a response to the wind farm development.
John West said the attorney will be leading the group’s presentation at the BZA meeting.
“If we can get a six month delay, maybe juwi will go away,” he said. “We’re trying to get the zoning ordinance changed.”
