A hearing on a proposed wind farm in Antelope County has once again been continued – this time until February 24th.  According to our news gathering partners at the Norfolk Daily News, the Commission did close the public comment part of the hearing after yesterday’s session, and will review the information and questions presented before the February 24th meeting.  The wind farm has been proposed mostly in the Neligh area.  Proponents tout the economic benefits, while opponents raise concerns about noise and other possible undesirable consequences.
