Help us protect the western Maine mountains  

The Friends of the Boundary Mountains are opposed to the TransCanada request to rezone Kibby Mountain and the Kibby Range from a “protected mountain zone” to a zone that permits industrial development, which would enable the construction of a 44-tower wind power project.

FBM invites the public to attend an evening of information and a free spaghetti dinner at the Stratton-Eustis Community Building on Friday, July 20 at 6 p.m.

The purpose of the dinner is to explain FBM’s reasons for opposing this wind project.

Presentations, which will follow immediately after the free spaghetti dinner, will be made by Duluth Wing and others. A video of the recent Maine Mountain Conference will be shown. If you are curious to hear the other side of this issue prior to the LURC hearing planned for Oct. 2 and 3 or are interested in learning some facts about wind power that the developers have been silent about, please attend.

FBM is also planning a hike to the 3,638′ Kibby Mt. for Saturday, July 29. (Rain date Sunday, July 30. Hikers will meet at the Stratton Eustis Community Building at 8 a.m. and carpool about 20 miles to the trailhead off the Gold Brook Road. This hike is a mostly moderate 1.6 mile walk with about 1,300′ of elevation gain. The views of the remote Boundary Mountains are outstanding along with the views of the north side of the Bigelow Range. This is the remote area that is about to be considered for rezoning by LURC for industrial wind power as proposed by TransCanada.

The FBM is a nonprofit organization formed to ensure that the Western Maine Mountains continue to be protected for the traditional uses of recreation and wood harvesting. Membership applications will be available at the dinner and the hike if you would like to join. Tax-deductible donations will be gladly accepted to help defray the cost of legal representation for the LURC hearing.
