More wind turbine talk at planning commission Monday night

The city's draft alternative energy ordinance will be up for discussion again Monday night at the Woodbury Planning Commission meeting 7 p.m. at Woodbury City Hall.

City planning staff will give a short presentation on the ordinance and then residents and property owners will be invited to voice their comments or concerns.

One of the items likely to get some attention is a chapter in the draft ordinance on wind turbines. The South Washington County School District has expressed interest in installing a wind turbine at the new East Ridge High School and the ordinance, if approved by the city council, would dictate the size, scope and location of any turbines in the city.
