News: Homeowner Protection Plans

Homeowner Protection Plans, once a secretive last resort by wind developers seeking approvals, may be coming out into the open, this time under the auspices of local government, judging from this story from the Journal-Standard (Freeport, Illinois).
"...[O]fficials move closer to completing a draft of the Homeowner Protection Plan, which establishes terms for compensating homeowners should their property values decline due to the wind towers.
"... As part of formulating the plan, county officials this week will meet with several concerned landowners to obtain their input on the document, Groves said. The wind-farm companies will also have input in the plan's creation. The plan will establish homeowner-related guidelines that the wind-farm companies must follow before they can obtain building permits."
