Thats right... public AND residential. Although, it seems there is a small provision for "small wind-energy conversion systems for farms". I'm presenting this mainly as an FYI as many areas are looking at banning or limiting commercial wind-energy systems. I think its odd that they would ban residential systems too. Especially since this town is in a very rural area (town population, not including cows, as of the 2000 census: 664). Edit: I had the article posted here, but to avoid copyright issues (thanks northwinds), heres a link to the article: http://www.thedailystar.com/news/stories/2007/03/14/pbbovinawind2.html If you're interested in wind energy, its worth reading.
