wind_zoningBoston planners are rewriting the city’s zoning code to allow wind turbines in certain areas, The Boston Herald reports.

“We want to give predictability to the private sector, and lay clear ground rules for wind project development, while being sensitive to neighborhood concerns,” said James Hunt, the city’s environment and energy chief, about the proposed changes.

Urban proposals for wind projects accelerated this month when New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg unveiled plans to put wind turbines on that city’s skyscrapers and bridges.
