Stop the Wind Farms in North Jack County!
#2I own land in Jack County and I want it to stay “nature” friendly. I love my wildlife and want to keep it this way!!!
Wonaka Williams (Ponder , 2021-01-26)
#3I own property on Hwy 148 in Jacksboro and have seen the endangered whooping cranes flying overhead during migration. I also understand how the wind farms ultimately cause longer lasting economic devastation to the region than any benefit provided.

#9I’m signing because I believe that 1) they are an invasion of privacy 2) they take moneys away from the county 3) they lower the land values of nearby lands 4) they have been documented to cause physical harm to persons who live near the turbines & 5) they are a danger to most species of wildlife and domesticated animals.
Sally Marshall (Bowie, 2021-01-27)
#12I am signing because wind turbines are not efficient and they destroy the landscape. There is also research that shows that they are harmful to the health of those that are near them.
Sylvia Hunt (Newport, 2021-01-27)
#13I'm signing because I want to preserve the traditional beauty of this land. I worked hard to buy and build my home, and I dont want wind farms to destroy view, and my property's value.

#16This would be detrimental to Clay County as well.
Lynda Cannedy (Joy, 2021-01-27)
#18I'm signing this petition because I am a land owner who does not want his property value hurt, game and migratory animals impacted, noise impacted, and visual beauty damaged.

#20My family has owned, farmed, and paid taxes on this land for over 125 years. It is a treasure to us and I don't want it to be ruined by noise and pollution.

#24I OWN LAND OFF OF 148 AND I DO NOT MY PROPERTY VALUE TO BE DEPRESSED DUE TO THE BUILDING OF THIS WIND FARM. IT WILL RUIN THE REASON I BOUGHT THE LAND.
BARRY SCHULZ (Justin, 2021-01-27)
#27I am signing because of the forever more loss of Property Values, Land Rights and the damage to our Legacy handed down to future generations. It is also not the Texas Way. It will pit Landowners who sign up against the best interest of countless neighbors.
Roby Christie (Jacksboro, 2021-01-27)
#28Land owner and against windfarms. They harm the environment, the rural landscape, cause the devaluation of property values. Besides the known harm to wildlife as well as the unknow harm to wildlife that will be seen in the future.
Yvette Schindler (Bowie, 2021-01-27)
#33I own land in jack county & am concerned about my land value & how the wildlife will be impacted.
Robert Brooks (Ponder, 2021-01-28)
#35I am singing this for my grandmother who has land there. Also my father and I lease it for cattle rights.
Reed Durham (Lipan , 2021-01-28)
#38Jack County will lose more money in the long run from depressed land values as well as diminished land appreciation. New home construction will bring a more sustainable tax revenue stream. If the windfarm does get approved you will no longer see mid-size to luxury homes being built in that area which bring sustainable tax revenue. Tax abatements do not make sense for the windfarms.
Miles Maddox (Jacksboro, 2021-01-28)
#39I’m against it.
Leza Kirksey (Longview , 2021-01-28)
#42Wildlife, quality of life, this is not the place for turbines. I am a landowner and will be negatively affected.

#43I’m a Texan
Kevin Gilbreath (Longview, 2021-01-28)
#44I am signing this petition because the very reason I purchased property in Jack County is that it fulfills my long term desire for ranch ownership and wildlife preservation. Erection of wind-farms destroys my purpose and cannot be reversed in my living years. It must be stopped now!
Joseph Cordina (Parker, 2021-01-28)
#45To express my opposition to any and all wind farms and northern Jack County and or Clay County
Wayne Johns (Bowie, 2021-01-28)
#48I am against a tax abatement for windmills. It will hurt our property value and bird migration such as the Whooping Crane that flies to Aransas Wildlife preserve each year.
As a public information request, who is the Commissioner that asked to include
this issue on the agenda?
Maurine Dickey (Jacksboro , 2021-01-28)
#50The Wind Farm will deprecate land values, be an eye soar, hurt the environment, kill endangered species and the wind farm contracts are written one sided and take advantage of land owners that don’t read the fine print. The men representing the wind farm will tell land owners what they want to hear and yet the contract is written different.
Gary D Massie (Bowie, Texas, 2021-01-29)
#54Wind Generators eventually failed. It is said that it requires more fossil fuel to construct than the electricity they can ever produce. Net results are negative. Also, they seem to be replace rather than repaired which creates a problem in ridding of them. They are truly and eye sore. They affect the bird population, and kill many eagles which you and i would go to jail for. bb

#55I’m signing because I am a landowner in northern jack county and I am against wind farm development!

#61Wind turbines are a false promise of green energy The turbines are not efficient nor reliable The company installing them is doing it for the tax credits and really doesn’t care about the landowners or the environment
Cullen Keith McConahay (Bowie, 2021-01-30)
#65I live in southern Clay county, approximately 2 miles north of the Jack co. line. I built a new house on approx 50 acres and wind farms will not only reduce the value of residential property in any area but will make them impossible to market. Please remember that wind farms will request tax favor while new residents will pay taxes and shop at local businesses which are vital to the local economy. Wind farms will employ a few local contractors during construction but will then revert to only a few maintenance personnel. Allowing wind farm development will cease housing (family) growth for many years within their line of sight!
Patrick Johnson (Bellevue, Texas , 2021-01-30)
#66Windmills lie in waste from years past. Covered in dirt cause they are not biodegradable. They are not the answer!
Laura Childs (Longview, 2021-01-30)

Priscilla Briney (Bowie, 2021-01-31)

Laura Gifford (Alvird, 2021-02-04)
#82My partner’s family will be directly impacted by the negative effects of this wind farm, and several endangered species are put further at risk.
Tyler Halbrooks (Lewisville, 2021-02-04)
#84My family owns several 100 acres in Jack county. I am highly against the wind farms and absolutely DO NOT want them anywhere near our family land or Jack county!!! They are ugly, loud and will degrade the value of the land and all the land in the area. Not only that but people move to the country to enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature, NOT to hear sounds of blades swinging!!!

#101They are not good for anyone or the environment.
Denese Rogers (Jacksboro , 2021-02-08)
#102Have land in North Jack county and bought in this area for a peaceful refuge from the city. I DO NOT WANT A WIND TURBINE as there are plenty in the area already, they are loud, they kill birds and are not efficient. It will also hurt the property value as this newly purchased property is part of our retirement. Please DO NOT allow a wind turbine farm in North Jack county!
Robyn Talton (Jacksboro, 2021-02-08)
#103I don’t want them! Decreases property values

#112Windmills are ugly. Noisy. They decrease property values and do not serve as a valuable energy source.
Pamela Hamman (Jacksboro, 2021-02-17)
#114I’m tired of these rolling blackouts and others having no electricity and the wind turbines aren’t even running!

#115The negative impacts of wind-farms.
Steve Stanford (Chico , 2021-02-20)
#116The Wind Farms are detrimental to wildlife. They are not reliable enough. They will diminish my property value. They are an eyesore.
Wayne Gilbert Jr (Jacksboro , 2021-02-21)
#117The real estate values in Jack County will be drastically and negatively affected with the potential new wind farm...
Roxanna Maddox (Jacksboro, 2021-02-23)

#120Stop this travesty
Charles Marley (Coppell , 2021-03-11)
#129I reject the use of public funds to subsidize private enterprise. Wind farms cost the taxpayers and the land owners with no real benifit to the ecology. The 2021 freeze proved the unreliability of this technology. The savings in fossil fuels for electrical generation is offset by the construction and maintenance of the turbines and electrical system. High cost. Little benefit. Unless you are supporting a French utility company.
Rick Bowers (Wichita falls , 2021-04-07)
#130I am a landowner in Jack County and strongly oppose Wind Turbines. They destroy the beauty of the countryside, depreciate property values and tax revenue, and are not biodegradable. KEEP THEM OUT OF JACK COUNTY!!’

Amanda Dale (Perrin , 2021-04-14)
#144We do not need any more wind turbines . They are killing birds and they do not provide cheap electricity. They are federally subsidized with the taxpayers hard earned money.
