Town extends wind delay  

Approximately 100 people attended the Meredith Town Board meeting Tuesday, where Sue Bailey presented petitions with 770 signatures opposing industrial wind turbines, Supervisor Frank Bachler said Friday.

Bachler said the crowd overflowed the town meeting room, which can only accommodate about 50 people.

The board passed a resolution to extend the moratorium on the erection of wind turbines for three months after the current one-year moratorium expires April 3, Bachler said. A public hearing on the extended moratorium will be held at 7 p.m. March 27 at the Meredith Town Hall.

The Meredith Town Planning Board has been working on a document addressing wind-turbine regulations for a year. Bachler said the Planning Board met Monday and voted to hand the document over to the Town Board.

Bachler said the proposed regulations prohibit industrial wind turbines.

Rosemary Nichols, a land-use attorney, is reviewing the document, he said. After Nichols’ review, the two boards will hold a series of joint meetings with her to discuss and possibly revise the proposed regulations.

Bachler said Bailey presented the board with the original petitions and an alphabetical list of the names on the petition.

The petition is in opposition to industrial-scale wind turbines but supports small turbines for individual or town projects, he said.
