The Illinois Wind Working Group will host its fourth Siting, Zoning, and Taxing of Wind Farms in Illinois Conference. The one-day conference will feature speaker panels to discuss wind farms topics for an audience of primarily county board members, zoning board members, government employees, and developers. Topics will include best practices of county and zoning boards, county ordinance revisions, roads, school district taxation, property value guarantees, and decommissioning. A Wind Energy 101 pre-session is also offered for those new to wind farm projects, providing a general overview and discussion on economic impacts, anticipated trends, wildlife issues, and sound and setback requirements.
