Plan and Zoning To Hear Conditional Use Permit Request

Posted on 25 February 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone County Plan and Zoning Commission will hold it’s first meeting of 2013 Monday evening at the Boone County Courthouse.  The Commission has been asked to consider a request for a conditional use permit for ITC Midwest for an electrical substation to be located northeast of Boone.  Last year, a similar proposal drew quite a reaction from neighbors and led ITC’s Troy Weary to withdraw the request.  Last week, Weary presented information to the Boone County Board of Supervisors about the company’s plans.  The company is still looking at locating a new substation northeast of Boone, but this time it would be located next to the current Boone Substation already located in that area.  Weary has said that ITC has upgraded transmission lines and capacity to Boone, and a new substation is part of that growth.  The company has already upgraded lines to the new Alliant Substation being constructed on the site of the old power plant on 8th Street.
