Appeals board delays work on wind farm 

FREEDOM – Thursday’s board of appeals meeting to discuss the Beaver Ridge wind turbine project was short and sweet.

The board, which failed to announce the organizational meeting properly, decided to delay much of the work it had planned to do until it reconvenes at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the town office.

“It went fine,” said chairman Addison Chase of Thursday’s meeting. “It went a lot easier than it might have.”

Steve Bennett and other family members appealed the planning board’s decision last month to allow three electricity-generating wind turbines on Beaver Ridge. In a one-page letter, Bangor Attorney Edmond Bearor, who represents the Bennetts, listed numerous instances in which Bearor believes the planning board should have rejected the project for lack of evidence.

Portland-based Competitive Energy Services hopes to complete the estimated $10 million project by the end of 2008.

The appeals board will use Tuesday’s meeting set a date for hearing the appeal, determine if it needs legal council throughout the process–an attorney worked with the planning board throughout its deliberation–and to set a time limit for meetings.
