The debate over windmills was back on the table before the Logan Township Board of Supervisors Thursday evening. The Gamesa wind turbine company wants to put energy windmills on Horseshoe Curve and Brush Mountain. Council had already passed an ordinance limiting the windmills to an area outside the Curve and Brush Mountain. The Curve is designatied as a National Historic site. Still, Gamesa project manager Terence Nicol made a presentation to council addressing some of the concerns people have about windmills, including how it will impact wildlife, the environment and tourism, hoping they would change the ordinance. In the end the council decided to stick with the ordinance which will limit the wind turbines to an area on the western side of the township bordered by Route 36 to the north and the Curve to the east.
