Tonight, the Umatilla County Planning Commission will make a decision on, amongst other things, whether to allow a local wind farm to amend its plans for a second phase of turbine building.

Eurus Combine Hills Phase II, LLC, is asking the commission to allow for changes in its conditional use permit on the Combine Hills Turbine Ranch Phase II Wind Project, located on several ridge lines and hilltops about three miles southwest of Umapine, six miles west of Milton-Freewater and near Vansycle Ridge.

Eurus is asking to change their project boundary, relocate a small portion of transmission lines, change some turbine locations and the location of the collector line system, change the placement of some roads, add communication towers and select a point to interconnect with Bonniville Power Administration’s grid, the commission’s meeting agenda said.
