Sustainable Power Zoning Code Amendments

UPDATE: The public hearing on Solar and Wind Energy zoning text amendments set for the March 6, 2019 City Council session will be postponed. The new date is yet to be determined.

Zoning text amendments pertaining to Solar and Wind Energy will be presented at City Council for public comment at a date yet to be determined. The proposed amendments will establish wind energy installations in all zoning districts, regulated as an accessory use, with standards and conditions stating where and how wind energy systems may be sited. The amendments also establish community solar gardens as primary uses on a conditional basis. The Saint Paul Planning Commission recommended approval of these amendments at the Commission’s November 3, 2017 public hearing.
