The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court upheld a ruling by Schuylkill County Judge Charles M. Miller in denying Broad Mountain Development Company, L.L.C., a zoning permit to construct 27 windmills along the mountain range in Butler Township.
A group of citizens intervened objecting to the wind mills, citing noise, ice, fires, potential health problems and lower property values as their reasons for objecting. The area is zoned WC (Woodland Conservation) District.
