Town may reverse its position on wind turbines  

FREEDOM – An ordinance to guide commercial development that was passed just last year may already be on the chopping block.

The town has scheduled a hearing for 7 p.m. on Tuesday at the Grange Hall to repeal the Commercial Development Review Ordinance just a year after voters approved it.

The ordinance was developed in response to Portland-based Competitive Energy Services plans to install three electricity generating wind turbines on Beaver Ridge.

While the planning board approved the turbines, in March the board of appeals rejected the project after finding it failed to meet the the noise levels and that Competitive Energy had not met bonding requirements spelled out in the commercial development ordinance.

A referendum ballot vote on the ordinance is scheduled for June 12.
