The Trelina review process, for a major solar development in the town of Waterloo, which has been at the center of recent controversy- will begin next month.
The Finger Lakes Times reports that a formal review of Trelina Solar Energy Center’s application to build and operate an 80 kilowatt solar farm in the west end of the town will begin April 16, leading up to the start of the evidentiary hearing June 23.
The Florida-based company is planning to construct a facility on approximately 250 acres of land leased from the Oese-Siegel family in the Packwood Road, Serven Road and Pre-Emption Street area.
Neighbors have contended that it will reduce property values and is not desired.
The town was previously granted $80,000 in inverter funds to use for hiring experts on the matter.
