A new survey will track land use regulations for wind and solar energy systems across the state.
Purdue Extension, along with Hoosiers for Renewables and the Indiana Farm Bureau, will conduct a survey of Indiana county plan directors to find out and track which policies and strategies communities have in place for climate change and renewable energy.
According to a press release, the survey will also look for factors communities consider when addressing land use policies and what motivates local governments to decide whether to approve or reject climate change and renewable energy in policy.
The survey will be available for county plan commissioners and local planning departments to complete from May 3 through May 28.
The results will be presented at the Indiana Land Use Summit on Sept. 8 and 9.
