Wind Energy Discussions Put on Halt! Moratorium Approved by All Three Henry County Supervisors

The Henry County Supervisors met on Tuesday morning for the 3rd Reading of the Resolution to Establish a Temporary Moratorium on the Rezoning of Land to the Alternative Energy Overlay District. This resolution was approved by all three board members, and it went into effect immediately. This moratorium will expire on March 2nd, 2025 at 11:59pm. However, it can be extended or terminated early.

With the room completely full and citizens standing in the hallway as well, many were happy to hear the results of the vote. A citizen thanked the supervisors for their “wise consideration” and multiple people clapped for the moratorium.

Multiple public hearings will be held on this issue in the future as the resolution states that they want to find the most appropriate uses of land for the county.
