It's been six years in the talking stages.

Now the proposed Lake Erie wind farm project is ramping up to become real. The organization LEEDCo, the Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation, is leading the project.

Lots of permits and financing must still be obtained. And more opposition is expected as public discussion provides more details.

What is the project's potential? What are its chances of success? What are the remaining obstacles?

Four east side suburbs are taking the bold step of studying the idea of merging into one community. Is now the logical time to do this? Can residents be persuaded to sacrifice their city's independence and identity?

Tom Beres discusses these issues with LEEDCo President Lorry Wagner, Plain Dealer Political Writer Mark Naymik and Plain Dealer Columnist/Editorial Board Member Joe Frolik on this edition of Between the Lines.
