New DeKalb Windmill Restrictions Move Forward

February 21, 2013 Updated Nov 13, 2013 at 4:08 PM EST

AUBURN, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A recommended change to a DeKalb County ordinance could place new restrictions on windmills.

The DeKalb County Plan commission approved the recommendation Wednesday night that would require a wind mill to be at at least 1,300 feet from property lines, road right-of-ways, easements and overhead utility lines.

Current regulations only require wind mills to be 400 feet from those restricted areas.

A separate section of the ordinance would require wind mills to be at least 1,500 feet from residential property lines.

The DeKalb County Commissioners are scheduled to vote on the changes at their meeting Monday morning at 8:30.
