Citizens of Elmore County: Are you aware of the proposed Bennett Solar Generation Project?

A preliminary Application Review Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, November 16th at the Hampton Inn in Mountain Home from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Written comments will be accepted for 30 days after the meeting.

This proposed project will occupy approximately 3,922 acres on BLM ground. It is “out of sight” from most people. It will have signage, lighting and fencing to make this desert become an eyesore. How many more solar and wind projects will be in the future?

Respectfully submitted

Darlene Owen
