Hearings and Votes around the State
In the glow of a successful launch of Wind Wise Radio on February 12th, the organizations around the state are gearing up for public events this week, with three on Wednesday alone.
The DEP/DPH panel report is the subject of open meetings on Tuesday and Thursday. Anyone who wants to dispel the impression that the recent press conference presented–industrial wind turbines have no health impacts–should try to attend in Boston on Tuesday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm in the State House’s Gardner Auditorium or in Bourne on Thursday from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at Bourne High School, 75 Waterhouse Road. If this impression stands, towns will see no need to protect their citizens with noise regulations and setback requirements.
On Wednesday, citizens of three towns have important votes. In Fairhaven there is a Special Town Meeting with wind-related warrant articles. In Lenox, the Board of Selectmen will vote on turbine siting. In Plymouth a Zoning Board of Appeals hearing will be held.
