Lansing aims to amend wind, solar laws as eco-friendly development becomes more common

The Lansing Town Council will review and possibly draft a final document for a new local law that would amend the land use ordinance related to solar and wind energy systems at its meeting on Aug. 21.

According to a current draft, the purpose of the law is to “facilitate and regulate the development and operation of certain renewable energy systems based upon the use of sunlight and wind,” for local residents and energy system companies.

“The goal here as part of this project was to get more specific about the size of the projects that would go to different types of review,” Lansing Town Director of Planning CJ Randall said.
