The Mayor’s Wind Farm Committee of the City of Evanston is planning a field trip to visit a wind farm in Indiana on Friday, May 13, for the committee and interested members of the community.

The goal of the trip is to see how wind turbines look from a distance similar to that of the proposed Evanston offshore wind project both during the day and at night.

A bus will leave from the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave., at 3 p.m. on Friday and will return around 11:30 p.m.

Interested members of the community are invited to attend and will be responsible for paying a prorated fee to cover the cost of their transportation.

To reserve a spot on the bus should contact Kate Todd at or 847-859-7825 by Saturday, May 7.
