Michelle Friedrich started this petition to Corcoran City Council Mayor Tom McKee and

WH Electric Coop is proposing to build a 2 1/2 acre substation just north of 6830 County Road 116, on property owned by Shamrock Golf Course at 19835 Larkin Road. The substation will connect to the existing power lines that currently run the length of the property at 6830 County Road 116 and 19835 Larkin Road. The substation is not a small station like on the corner of Larkin Road and County Road 116, it will cover 2 1/2 acres of current farmland. The substation is directly across from Oak Ridge Farm on County Road 116. Electrical substations emit EMF radiation, with various scientific reports supporting a link between EMF radiation and leukemia in some people. Electrical substations directly impact property values located near them. There is a better location for the substation in Corcoran rather than next to existing residential properties in the Olde Sturbridge and Oak Ridge Farm neighborhoods. Once this substation is constructed, we will not be able to suggest a more suitable location, so we need to act very soon. The preliminary plat is going to the Corcoran Planning Commission on Feb 4, and City Council on February 25. Please reach out to Corcoran City Council in the attached letter, and the Planning Commission to oppose this electrical substation location.
