Wind farm meeting in DeKalb County set for Aug. 28
MAYSVILLE, Mo. – A DeKalb County community listening session on wind farm development will take place 6-9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28, at the June Conley Building, 701 E. Main, Maysville.
Residents and community members are invited to share their views and experiences around wind farm development in small-group settings with team members from the University of Missouri. Marshall Stewart, MU vice chancellor for extension and engagement, and Blake Hurst, president of the Missouri Farm Bureau board of directors, will provide the welcome.
“By sharing your stories, experiences and views, you will help the team develop resources that individuals and communities can use to understand the concerns, risks, legalities, and pros and cons of wind farm development throughout Missouri,” said Joe Lear, MU Extension regional director for northwestern Missouri.
At the request of landowners and community leaders in northwestern Missouri, MU Extension has been working since early 2018 to develop unbiased resources to help individuals and communities work constructively through issues surrounding wind energy development.
