PRESIDIO COUNTY - Presidio County Commissioners gave the green light to set aside a 1,200 acre piece of property for a proposed solar project.
They voted on Tuesday after a long public hearing where Marfa residents voiced their concerns about the project's impact on tourism and the landscape.
Their main concern is about the location of the site, which is near Highway 67 between Marfa and Alpine.
Commissioners still need to vote on giving a tax abatement before a contract can be signed with element power.
