For those with proposed solar farms or those interested in planning ahead, Minnesota has technical guidance for establishing pollinator habitat (prairie) in solar farms. Their guidance includes info about seed mixes and densities, options for where to plant pollinator habitat within solar farms, and their state certification process. Maybe of interest to solar developers or the county.

 It's available at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/publications/ewr/prairie_solar_tech_guidance.pdf 

Notice: Waupaca County shall maintain a list of persons who submit a written or electronic request to receive notice of any proposed ordinance or amendment that affects the allowable use of the property owner by that person. This list shall be updated at least annually.
