Public to comment on Hanover wind turbines

If wind turbines are ever proposed for Hanover Township, the board of commissioners wants to be ready.

The board is holding a hearing on Feb. 17 to seek public comment on adding to its zoning ordinance of a provision to allow turbines in certain areas as a conditional use. After the public comments at the special meeting, the board could vote on the issue.

Board members have discussed the issue before, township manager John Sipper said, and the proposal came after “a concern about future developments to make sure the township is protected.”
