LOCKPORT, N.Y. — You may have seen several no solar farm signs throughout Niagara County for over a year now. Those signs are referencing a big solar farm project in the county that is scheduled to be brought before the planning board next week.
A group of people in the Lockport area spoke out Wednesday night against a proposed solar power plant.
Residents oppose the project and say their voices have not been heard throughout the process.
There is a meeting on Tuesday, May 18 addressing the issue, which the group Protect Our Rural Communities plans to attend, in an attempt to persuade the Lockport planning committee to vote "no."
