BOONE, Iowa—The Iowa Utilities Board staff was on hand in Boone to conduct a required informational meeting about a proposed electric transmission line. A large crowd of residents and property owners that had been notified showed up at the Gigglin’ Goat, many to protest the project. The Cyclone Wind Project would be built east of Stratford in southern Hamilton County, but the proposed transmission line would run along “Q” Avenue in Boone County to the Boone Junction Substation northeast of Boone. The developer of the project is enXco.
