Golden Shores solar plant goes before county planners again
KINGMAN — The Mohave County Planning and Zoning Commission on Wednesday will discuss a solar power plant near Golden Shores.
Postponed from the July meeting, the commission will consider extending the time for a change to the Mohave County General Plan and the Sterling Area Plan, as well as extending the rezone for the solar plant to heavy manufacturing and solar photovoltaic overlay. Sterling Solar LLC plans to build a 200-megawatt solar generating plant east of Golden Shores and north of Interstate 40.
The commission in October 2014 approved a one-year time frame for the applicant to secure permits from the Western Area Power Administration and to comply with the National Environmental Protection Act. The applicant had asked for a four-year extension.
In other action, the commission will discuss a permit for a 120-foot wireless communication tower on an acre of property in Lagoon Estates north of Valley Drive and east of Highway 95.
The commission will discuss a permit for a 180-foot wireless communication tower on about 18.8 acres of property north of Boundary Cone Road and west of Highway 95.
The planning and zoning issues will go before the county supervisors for approval at their Sept. 4 board meeting. The commission meeting starts at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the board of supervisors auditorium in the county administration building at 700 W. Beale St. in Kingman.
