Town of Menasha Board to consider wind turbine project, public concerns  


TOWN OF MENASHA – Residents of a 10-story condominium along Northern Road here have a unique view of the northwest shore of Little Lake Buttes des Morts and the surrounding area.

They and some neighbors are concerned that a proposed wind turbine demonstration project involving 36 pipe-mounted, 120-foot tall turbines in a nearby industrial area would become an eyesore and cause problems in the area just east of U.S. 41.

A petition and a letter from residents of the two Northern Road condominiums, the high-rise Park and the Harborage, raise numerous issues, including aesthetics, noise, odors and possible harm to birds that nest in the nearby Stroebe Island marsh.

The letter urges the Town Board reject a request for a conditional use permit for the project requested by Kelly Rousseau of Hortonville and Tom Newton of Manitowoc as Soul Purpose Ministry, Inc., a nonprofit Christian ministry.

The group gained conditional approval of the permit a month ago from the town’s Planning Commission.

The Town Board will consider the permit Monday and a public hearing will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday before the Winnebago County Planning and Zoning committee.
