Little Falls, NY, February 5th, 2007 – An 11-year-old girl with Central Auditory Processing Disorder lives in a house approximately 1600 feet from the proposed site of an industrial wind turbine in the Town of Fairfield, Herkimer County, yet her Doctors say that the turbines cannot be built within a mile and a half of her home because of the noise they generate. More than 20 turbines are proposed to be built within one mile of her home. The girl is scared and does not want her family to have to move if the wind turbines are built.
Her medical condition requires that her school make special provisions so that she will have a quiet learning environment. Her life in her home is dependent upon the present quiet country atmosphere. Neither wind turbine project developer Atlantic Wind nor the Fairfield Town Board will acknowledge the family’s many requests to look into the health consequences of Atlantic Wind’s proposed wind turbine facility. Her family first brought this to the Fairfield Town Boards’ attention in July 2006.
Fairfield Concerned Citizens Inc. has been formed to bring public attention to the problems which may result if the proposed industrial wind turbine facility is built, and to bring legal proceedings if necessary. To that end, Fairfield Concerned Citizens Inc. has retained attorney Robert M. Cohen, of Ballston Lake, New York.
Tax deductible donations are needed and can be sent to Fairfield Concerned Citizens Inc. at P.O. Box 1013, Little Falls, NY 13365.
