(Starke County, IN) - Plans for a solar farm near Bass Lake are moving forward. This week the Starke County Planning Commission heard comments regarding the rezoning of over 600 acres to facilitate the installation of solar panels.
A handful of properties were up for rezoning. Two large parcels adjacent to Bass Lake residences were not approved for rezoning. Two other parcels totaling 173 acres on the west side of US 35 were approved.
The land is currently zoned residential and must be converted to agricultural for potential solar use. Starke Solar, LLC has plans to install the solar farm.
