Public Hearing

 

SolarStone has submitted applications for two separate 13.8-acre, 2-megawatt solar gardens, to be known as Whiskey Acres Project 1 and Whiskey Acres project 2, on a 81.56-acre property at the southeast corner of Keslinger and Crego Roads; the two solar gardens will occupy the westernmost portion of the property. 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.

A public hearing will be held before the DeKalb County Hearing Officer on Thursday, November 8, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. in the DeKalb County Administrative Center, Conference Room East, 110 E. Sycamore Street, Sycamore, IL, 60178. Because this will be the only opportunity for public input on this application, all interested persons are encouraged to attend and be heard.
