Lee County Board Facing Lawsuit Over Proposed Wind Farm

LEE COUNTY (WIFR) – The Lee County Board is facing a lawsuit from dozens of homeowners. The 60 plaintiffs are trying to stop the construction of a 53-turbine wind farm near their homes. The project was approved by the county board in May, overruling a zoning board recommendation that they reject it. The suit also names Mainstream Renewable Power, the company who plans to put up the turbines.
