Public Hearing

 

Forefront Power has submitted applications for two separate 2-megawatt Solar Gardens, to be known as Hasselmann-Kirkland 1 and 2, to be located on 60.56-acre property located on the south side of Wolf Road, approximately 2,800 feet east of Myelle Road, in Kingston Township: one will be a 16.8–acre facility in the Northern portion of the property, and the second will be 16.8–acre facility immediately south of the first facility. The property is zoned A-1, Agricultural District, and solar gardens are a Special Use in that district. Before Special Use Permits can be approved by the DeKalb County Board, a public hearing must be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer.
