It's being called a "public informational meeting" at the Rogers Event Center in Royal Center.

As News 18 has been reporting, British-based RES wants to develop a wind farm near that town.

It would include turbines as tall as 840 feet.

The proposed setback from homes would reportedly be 1,000 feet.

Residents have gathered more than 1,300 signatures on petitions calling for increasing the setback.

They also say Cass County Commissioners aren't listening to their concerns.

Two weeks ago, commissioners told us they are in negotiations with RES and under a non-disclosure agreement.
