Proposal would require military approval of tall structures in Pamlico

Published: Friday, March 1, 2013 at 12:39 PM.

The draft proposal puts setbacks at 2,640 feet from public right of ways and adjacent non-participating landowners. That distance is reduced to 1,320 feet with a written waiver by the neighboring property owner.

There are also provisions for sound levels; and the rotor blades on wind turbines must be at least 24 feet above the ground.

The draft also calls for a bond or cash deposit amounting to 150 percent of the cost to remove any abandoned wind energy facilities.

The planning board reconvenes Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the commissioners’ room on the second floor of the Pamlico County Courthouse.
