In a 4 to 1 vote, the Pershing County Regional Planning Commission recommended approval of a Special Use Permit with conditions for the county’s second industrial solar farm north of Lovelock. The County Commission next will consider the project and approve or deny the permit.
On December 5, 2019, the planning commission rejected an earlier permit application for the same project. At that hearing, “several items of concern were discussed and the Planning Commission ultimately denied the application because of the lack of information” according to the staff report by Planning and Building Department Director James Evans.
