Cherry Valley board adopts wind ordinance  

The Cherry Valley town board adopted one of, if not the most, stringent local wind ordinance in the state Thursday night and at the same time pulled the plug on Reunion Power’s plans for the East Hill Wind Farm.

The board was split 2-1 on a motion to adopt the local law. Councilman Fabian Bressett, in the last meeting of his 33-year tenure on the board, cast the lone dissenting vote.

The ordinance creates a review and permitting process and sets minimum standards for the siting, approval, construction and operation of wind energy facilities within the town.

“I’m very satisfied,” said town supervisor Tom Garretson following the meeting. “It puts us right where we want to be.”

Reunion Power’s project manager David Little, who said earlier the ordinance would make it impossible to develop the wind on East Hill, expressed his disappointment at the board’s action.

Little said he did not know what Reunion’s future plans are now, but that they will have to examine their options.
