How does Linn County permit solar farms?

A utility-scale solar project requires an application to rezone the area to be used for the solar installation to (RE) Renewable Energy Overlay Zoning District. The Linn County Planning & Zoning Commission shall hear the rezoning request and will forward a recommendation of approval or denial to the Linn County Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors will hold three public hearings for the rezoning request before making their final decision.  For more information on the permitting, visit our solar farm webpage.  Meeting dates can be found on the Zoning Calendar.
