MILAN TWP.

Citizens opposed to rezoning 3.77 acres of the Erie County landfill have thrown an apparent monkey wrench into plans to build a plant that would produce electricity by burning methane gas produced by the landfill.

Norwalk-based Bio-Gas Technologies planned to build a landfill-gas-to-energy system and move its operations to the rezoned land in Milan Township.

For reference, it's not the building of the energy plant that most of them are against... It's the spot-rezoning. I live in Norwalk, but I see where the problem is: If they can willy-nilly re-zone a piece of agricultural land into industrial, they can build whatever kind of factory they want right next to a house, a farm, a pasture... I respect what they are trying to do, but find a way to put it on land that's already zoned for it. (Norwalk resident, so I really have no stake in this other than my opinion.)
