What Community do you want to live in?

We need help to protect our community from outside interests which     threaten our local health, safety, investments, and way of life.

About WE Energy’s Proposal

WE Energies is attempting to place a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) storage facility in Ixonia on north road,  between the intersection of Hill road and gopher hill. The industrial complex on the 120-acre plot will house a 15-story storage tank in the middle of our rural community.

why is this development bad for Ixonia: 

  • Your families health and safety will be at risk

  • You property value will go down

  • LNG development will shape the future of Ixonia

  • Ixonia Elementary is in the danger zone

  • Community infrastructure will be taxed

  • Our environment will be at risk

  • There is a track record of deceits 

  • This proposal is the opposite of years of community planning

  • This proposal is not neccisary

9/14 The Ixonia town board voted to recommend the conditional use of the property, which is opposite to the recommendation of the Planning Commission which declined the conditional use for a utility in an A-1 zone requested by Dale and Jeanine Griebenow. The jefferson county zoning commission can overturn the Ixonia Board's decision, so it's important that Ixonia resident's voices are heard!  Dates have been confirmed for the Jefferson County Planning and Zoning Committee:

 

October 9 -- Site Inspection meeting. Starts at 8 a.m. Committee members will drive to Ixonia to look at the proposed project site on North Rd. at the intersection with Triangle Rd. . Because of the massive size of the proposed project, our County Board Supervisor Amy Rinard will ask the committee to drive around the area to look at the project site from different directions and different elevations, including Hill Rd. and Ridge La. So don't take down your yard signs! Put up more signs!!

 

October 22 -- Public hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. instead of the usual 7 p.m. because of the anticipated large number of people who will want to speak at Fair Park Activity Center in Jefferson to accommodate more people. There will be a Zoom option available for people to speak to the committee and to watch the proceedings. Registration to use the Zoom option is required after which an email is sent with the Zoom link. (We will send out the Zoom registration link and the public hearing agenda as soon as it is available.) This is a very important meeting. Plan to attend to have your voice heard. Get it all on the record!
