About 100 people packed the courthouse annex meeting room Monday night for the Ridgeville public forum on the application for a conditional use permit (CUP) by Summit Ridge Energy LLC. Attendees came from as far away as Michigan to have their three minutes of testimonial. "It was the end of peace and quiet," said Kelly Alexander, a Michigan resident who had a turbine placed near his home. "Silence is a luxury. We're talking about the adverse effect on health and safety. These turbines need to be placed farther away."
