Wind farms are only focus of Tipton CRD
There have been many rumors about who and what the Tipton County Citizens for Responsible Development (CRD) is. We would like to dispel those rumors by communicating the origin and mission of the CRD.
The CRD was formed in the beginning of 2013 in order to organize a community effort to voice the concerns of Tipton County citizens of the Prairie Breeze Wind Farm.
Early on, the CRD recognized an alarming amount of residents living within the Wildcat I Wind Farm were looking for help and a voice to express their concerns. With this scope in mind, we developed our mission statement:
“Focused on ensuring that wind development in Tipton County, Indiana, is done without harm to homeowners and supports the interests of homeowners living with existing wind farms.”
The CRD board takes this mission very seriously. We will not be involved in any matters outside of this mission statement. The board is made up of a diverse group of Tipton County citizens who have differing opinions on other issues, but the common issue of concern for the CRD is the wind issue. This is also true for our supporters. While we have a common issue of wind turbine development, our supporters have concerns outside of the CRD mission statement. The CRD board would like to reiterate that it will not be involved in any of these other matters.
The CRD speaks as a board only when the subject matter pertains to wind. All board communications are done via press release, CRD website and when an authorized person identified below clearly states that they are communicating on behalf of the CRD board.
In order to end any confusion as to who is on the board of the CRD, our names are listed below. If anyone should have any questions pertaining to the CRD, any member of the board can be contacted.
We are: Jeff Hoover, Paige Hoover, Jeff Thomas, Kirsten Leonard, Michele McNabb, Chris Rossi, John West, Juanita Thomas, Mark Lynn, Imran Malik, Julie Rossi, Emily West, Brian Key, Eric Juliot and Beth Juliot.
