Just a heads up to anyone who loves Sandrock. Texas-based corporation Pioneer Green has come up with what they call “The Shinbone Ridge Energy Project,” a plan to build up to twenty 450-foot turbines along the crest of the mountain. Part of the facility will be located at Cherokee Rock Village on land leased by the Cherokee County Parks and Recreation Board. In addition to being an eye sore, they pose a danger to wildlife. There are also health concerns related to ultrasonic noise. The pristine beauty of the area which attracts us all has attracted Pioneer Green who figured if no one was living there, it would be an ideal place to build a wind farm.
Hey, I'm just copying and pasting from the Facebook page.I do agree it is not pristine but it is still beautiful,especially to those who live 7 hours away from real rock. I don't visit the area anymore since they bulldozed the place.
