Boundaries of Young County solar project released

Over 1,400 acres will be discussed as a possible Young County Solar Reinvestment Zone on Monday, April 8, according to a legal notice published on Saturday.

A map provided by Young Central Appraiser Luke Robbins shows the land in question is north of Graham and south of Loving off FM 2652, Red Top Road, and stretches southeast to Hwy. 16.

During the Commissioner’s Court meeting on March 25, it was announced the county had reached a tentative agreement with Belltown Power Texas for a solar project. Declaring the land as a reinvestment zone is the first step towards a tax abatement, or lessening, for the business.

According to Robbins, at least some of the land is owned by a private citizen, Randal M. Stephens.
