Editor's note: The following story has been updated with correct information MONROE - A local property owner will have to wait a few more months before he can put a 102-foot wind turbine on the south side of his business at 1020 3rd Avenue in Monroe. Richard Weeden approached the city Plan Commission on Wednesday to ask for approval for an 80-foot wind turbine tower to be placed outside of Discount America Hobby and Motorsports, which is housed in a building he owns. Its blades are 22 feet in length.
