BLT forum on Solar Ordinances
October 4, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Burrillville Land Trust is hosting a forum and public review on the model ordinances from the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources and Statewide Planning. Members from OER and Statewide Planning will be on hand to give the presentation, review the suggested recommended ordinance and ask for input from both the policy making side, the planning and public interest side.
Over the last nearly two years, the Land Trust has attended stakeholder meetings offered by the OER to come up with model ordinances for Town Councils, Planning Boards and the public. The meetings included members from the environmental community, the policy, for profit, and professional side, as well as the general public. This is your chance to hear about the results of those stakeholder meetings. Town Council members, Planning Board members and land owners are encouraged to attend. Workshop attendees are asked to park on the left side parking lot when facing the front of police station. The title of the presentation is Guidance to Municipalities on Solar Development & Model Solar Ordinance.
Land Trust officials say that the information and results of those stakeholder meetings is important for everyone. As more and more land owners look for revenue in-order to hold on to their land, solar installations to generate electricity becomes more of an option.
The workshop is free and open to the general public For more information contact the BLT at (401) 447-1560.
