The applicants are requesting a change in zone classification on approximately 300 acres in order to allow for the construction of up to 17 wind turbine generators which would generate up to 40 megawatts (MW) of energy. Additionally, the project proposes the incorporation of the Floodplain (FP) Combining District on about 100 acres located along Cache Creek. Implementation of the request would also entail construction of three meteorological towers, seventeen crane pads, on and off-site access roads, control cables, and subsurface feeder line corridors and collector system lines necessary to serve the project.
