Citizens Voice of Mason County started this petition to Mason County KY

Since 2019, out of state developers have been working quietly in Maysville-Mason County to secure options on roughly 10,000 acres (or more) of farmland for industrial-scale solar facilities, while aggressively lobbying our local officials to allow this new kind of development under our local zoning ordinance—without public knowledge or input. 

Industrial solar development is wrong for Maysville-Mason County, as it will destroy our beautiful and productive farmland; diminish our property values; damage our sensitive environmental resources; create significant tax payer liabilities for the decommissioning of solar facilities; generate few permanent jobs in our local economy; and undermine our cultural brand and special quality of life.

A comprehensive and transparent public process is needed to fully understand industrial solar's short term and long term costs to our community. This has not been done, and we therefore strongly oppose allowing industrial scale solar facilities in our agricultural zones in Mason-County.  

Please join Citizens Voice of Mason County in saying no to industrial solar, and moving our communities and farms forward in Maysville-Mason County…together.
