Coggon Solar LLC has submitted its application to Linn County Planning & Development for a utility-scale solar project in Linn County.
The application is posted on Linn County’s website.
A utility-scale solar project requires an application to rezone the area to be used for the solar installation to (RE) Renewable Energy Overlay Zoning District.
Once an applicant submits a utility-scale solar application to Linn County Planning & Development, the review process begins. This process is robust and includes benchmark reviews from the Technical Review Committee, Planning & Development staff, and the Planning & Zoning Commission before any application is presented to the Board of Supervisors. The review process is designed to review all applications thoroughly against the development standards outlined in Linn County’s utility-scale solar ordinance. Additional standards may be imposed as part of the review process.
The review process is the same for all utility-scale solar applicants:
The first meetings of the Technical Review Committee and the Planning & Zoning Commission for the Coggon Solar LLC application are expected to occur in September or October 2021.
Sign up to be notified of the meetings and agendas once they are scheduled by visiting www.LinnCounty.org/NotifyMe.
