Village board members start petition against solar farm

The proposed solar farm was a big topic of discussion again at the June 5 Baldwin Village Board meeting.

The board held considerable discussion on the request for a special use application that was filed with Randolph County Zoning by Innovative Power Systems, Inc. and Sara Wagner to put up an approximately 40 acre solar farm.

Some village board members are against the location of the proposed farm and have composed a petition for residents who are also opposed to the location to sign. The petition will be taken to the Randolph County Board of Commissioners meeting on Friday, June 15 at 9 a.m.
