Board adopts tall structures ordinance
The Enterprise, February 17, 2007, Stuart, VA.
"The issue that roared into Patrick County like a windstorm almost a year ago blew away Monday like a gentle breeze.
"The Patrick County Board of Supervisors voted to pass a tall structures ordinance that will prohibit the construction of 400-foot wind turbines on the county’s mountain ridges. Telecommunications towers and church steeples are exempt from the tall structures ban."
