Cedar Rapids may allow signs on wind turbines

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Kirkwood Community College may soon be able to place its logo on its wind turbine.

The Cedar Rapids city council discussed changing a city ordinance that would allow signs on wind energy conversion systems.

Kirkwood requested that change because currently the only signs allowed on turbines are safety signs.

The changed code would not allow advertising.

Signs would have to identify the turbine's owner and would only be allowed on the nacelle, the box-like piece near the top.

The matter will go back to the city council at a later meeting.
