Wind farm project progresses

HETTINGER, N.D. -- Despite strong opinions for and against the project, both the Adams County Planning and Zoning Board and the Adams County Commission voted Monday to approve a proposed wind farm in southwest North Dakota.

The Planning and Zoning Board approved the controversial project by a six-to-one vote.

After a 10-minute break at the Adams County Courthouse, the County Commission convened and its three members voted unanimously to approve the project.

There was opposition to the proposed 75-tower Thunder Spirit Wind farm by Bill and Ellen Elders, who brought legal representation in addition to each addressing the board.
