Wind Turbines were the main topic at Buckeye Central Board of Education meeting

New Washington. To start the work of the Central Council for Education of the Party, members of the public appealed to the Council for Urgent Upcoming Issues.

Nick Fat, who has children coming to the district, was the first to speak to the board of education regarding the Apex wind energy project.

“I’m here to talk to you about the wind turbines being offered for this area. I just wanted to give you information and feel, just spread good information so people can look for it, ”Faith said.

Faith gave board members the information the Seneca East Board of Education gathered to send to the Ohio State Electricity Placement Council after they conducted a study and decided it was bad for their community. He also gave them handouts on how turbines will affect children with autism.

“One of my big concerns is – I’ve always been proud of this area and worked hard to have a good community – turbines tend to drive people away and I know we want the future to be better and I I fear that this will reduce the number of people leaving for health reasons, irritation due to turbines and lower property values. If people move, I don’t think anyone will find buyers because I don’t think anyone will want to live in an industrial wind farm, ”Fat said.

The proposed wind turbines are up to 650 feet high, with one blade longer than the entire Wynford turbine from base to tip. It is estimated that Apex plans to supply 80 to 144 turbines.

“If you come to a conclusion, it would be good to inform the commissioners if the district decides that they are bad for our community because of all the negative consequences,” Fat said. “There’s no known schedule, but the faster we move, the better because it’s been going on for a long time and it’s been so quiet because the wind company knows it’s destroying communities, it’s tearing people apart, forcing people to fight without reasons, and it’s just bad, so they keep quiet until the end comes when it has to come out, and then we have to step in and try to fight for our homes ”.

Roger Weisenauer, who lives in Winford County but actively walks and opposes turbines, also addressed the council.

“There is no public vote, these are three commissioners, and this is our vote. There will be a public meeting where you can express your dissatisfaction, ”Weisenauer said. “The deadline is like clockwork, if Apex falls, let’s say they fall tomorrow, then you have fourteen days from now to hold a public meeting with the affected affected townships and county commissioners, and once they do, then from now on the hours begin, and they have ninety days, and the commissioners have two choices – they can approve it or not approve it. By not approving it, they have declared all or part of Crawford County an exclusion zone, as Seneca County did in November, or they may sit back and do nothing, and if they do nothing, it is considered the approval of the project. “

Under Senate Bill 52, the decision rests solely on the shoulders of the commissioners as soon as Apex falls to the OPS.

“If they don’t do anything, then they get along – you can say you don’t like them, but if you don’t take any action, you approve of them, so it’s definitely misleading. You can force all three commissioners to say they are against them, but if they do not take any action to declare Crawford County a no-go zone, they have approved them, ”Weisenauer said.

Weisenauer went on to talk about how, apart from the Seneca Education Board, East has publicly stated its rejection of wind turbines that were proposed there a few months ago, but the Seneca County Parks District, Seneca County LifeFlight, EMS and Seneca. its rejection of turbines.

At the end of the public discussion section, the meetings proceeded to normal proceedings.

One of the items approved by the board was to send staff to the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 19 and 20 to participate in a professional development program.
