Ford Co. Zoning Board of Appeals Hearing: “Those Outsiders”

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On October 6, 2018

PAXTON, IL. (ECWd) –

Video of the Ford County Zoning Board of Appeals Hearing held on October 3, 2018. It is approximately 4 hours in length and the board recessed until October 25th at 7:00 p.m. to continue the Hearing. View the above photo full size (here).

Some things noteworthy:

  • a resident complained about all “the outsiders” assisting those wanting setbacks from the property lines and larger overall setbacks. Immediately following his comment were 8 “outsiders” providing testimony in favor of the wind turbine industry’s relaxed rules. It might be assumed these people were paid for their testimony as they mostly work for the wind industry.
  • some testimony from wind industry proponents dealt with financial aspects of the ZBA hearing results, which should never be considered in determining zoning changes.

The video is in three parts:
