COOLIDGE — At Wednesday’s Coolidge Planning and Zoning meeting, Orsted Energy had its site plan approved with a few revisions, while NextEra Energy Resources withdrew its application for the Valley Farms Solar project.
A lawyer for the Valley Farms Solar Project asked that their application be withdrawn and taken off the agenda due to opposition from the public.
Economic Development Services Director Gilbert Lopez said, while the Valley Farms Project was withdrawn last night because of opposition from the public, it could always be revisited if this is what the company wanted.
The site plan revisions, which the Orsted team will need to do at its proposed Eleven Mile Solar Center, would include a seven-foot block fence on Sunshine Boulevard, equal to the property line of landowner Thomas Bagnall.
