DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Officials in Dodge City have approved a measure to allow wind energy systems in all zoning districts, including residential areas.

The Dodge City Globe reports (http://bit.ly/17JpK6V ) that the city commission on Monday approved an amendment to the 2000 Dodge City zoning ordinance to add wind energy conversion systems as a conditional use in all zoning districts.

Dodge City spokeswoman Jane Longmeyer says the Dodge City Planning Commission held a public hearing on April 16 and recommended permitting wind energy conversion systems on residential and commercial property.

City Clerk Nannette Pogue says while wind turbines will now be permitted on residential and commercial property regulations will address how much land is needed for the turbines and how far they must be from buildings.
