Views Become an Issue in Wind Farm Approval
Bonneville County Planning Director Steve Serr is quoted in the Post Register:
"What's especially difficult to balance with this particular issue is that a lot of the community concern seems to be for their views, for the skyline," he said. "From the standpoint of drafting a law, you can't really own a view. When you buy a piece of property you don't have any rights to a view. But it's still a community concern."
Other officials say that by focusing on the view issue, locals are failing to see the significant tax revenue that these turbines represent.
