Fairhaven town election, Falmouth standout and town meeting

April 1, 2012

Fairhaven’s town election is Monday, April 2, 2012 with the polls open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.

Polling places for the following precincts are:

  1. Town Hall
  2. High School
  3. Hastings Middle School
  4. Hastings Middle School
  5. Leroy Wood School
  6. East Fairhaven School

Windwise-Fairhaven is planning a victory party for Monday night.

A hearing before the Planning Board on Tuesday April 3, 2012 will ask the town to consider changes to the by law on height and setbacks for industrial wind turbines. The meeting at town hall begins at 6:30 pm.

Falmouth holds its Spring Town Meeting on APRIL 2, 2012. A standout at 6:00 pm at the Lawrence School Entrance precedes the 7:00 pm meeting.

ARTICLE 23 on the warrant proposes to stop the #1 and #2 turbines except for necessary testing and maintenance until the Fall Town Meeting–by which time the sound testing should finally be completed and the selectmen should have their mitigation plan on the table.

It is now TWO FULL YEARS since residents began suffering but the town’s selectmen are just now proposing to form a committee in an attempt to find some “common ground” to mitigate the problem in the town’s favor.  The turbine abutters define “common ground” as the return to the same enjoyment of home, garden, and uninterrupted sleep, as other Falmouth residents.

Support the Falmouth turbine victims and Article 23 by joining the standout from 6:00 to 7:00 pm along the roadway/sidewalk entrance to Lawrence School at 113 Lakeview Ave., Falmouth.
