The Town Board and the Planning Board of Moreau, NY,are having trouble coming to an agreement on the rules they want in place when they get their first application for an array of solar panels.

The Town Board doesn’t like the phrase, “banning solar panels on prime farmland.” They think it is too restrictive.

The Planning Board, on the other hand, doesn’t think it is restrictive enough. They think every acre of farmland is valuable, prime soils or not, and that the comprehensive plan should be amended to emphasize farmland protection.

They will be meeting in the future to discuss these opposing views.
