Shelburne Falls bylaw would rule out IWTs

April 11, 2012

Industrial scale wind turbines would be out if the Shelburne voters approve a bylaw heard Tuesday night by the Planning Board. Yoojin Cho of Channel 22 news in Springfield reported under the headline, “Some residents oppose Shelburne Falls wind turbines proposal.” The towns of Shelburne and Buckland, both have a stake in the outcome, as the wind plant proposal of Frederick Field for Mt. Massaemet–now downscaled from its original size–would tower over the village of Shelburne Falls. Known for its Bridge of Flowers and as a cultural district, the falls connects the two towns. Diane Broncaccio‘s reporting in the Greenfield Recorder provides regular updates on the developments of this ongoing story.
