reports that North Ridgeville City Council approved legislation that will govern the construction and operation of wind-energy systems. According to the article, the ordinance was introduced after a resident of the Cleveland suburb installed a 35-foot turbine behind his house, and officials discovered that the city lacked ordinances to control the location and appearance of such systems. Under the new law, property owners will need to obtain a conditional use permit from the city prior to constructing a wind energy system.
