County Board Approves First Solar Farms in Champaign County

For some non-election news, here’s part of a post from the Cheat Sheet of Champaign County on local rural solar farms:

“The October 18th County Board meeting (video here, agenda here, and addendum here) mainly focused around approving the first solar farms since the ordinance allowing such developments was passed (more on that here). To jump to the portion of the meeting discussing the solar farms in question and concerns about the ordinance click here. News-Gazette blurb from yesterday:  Champaign County Board approves two rural solar farms. ”
