Public testimony may influence Cape Wind  

The Cape Cod Commission will hear public testimony this week on a process that may be used as it reviews Cape Wind Associates’ proposal to build 130 wind turbines on Nantucket Sound.

The proposed changes to the Commission process will affect projects that go before the state’s energy facility siting board. That body has already approved the part of the Cape Wind project over which it has jurisdiction – the connection of the wind turbines’ power line to the power grid.

The Commission’s regular meeting tomorrow begins at 3 p.m. with public comments on the new process in the Assembly of Delegates Chamber in the Barnstable District Courthouse.

A proposed resolution by the Commission will be forwarded to a standing committee that will return to the full Commission with any proposed changes at a later date.

Depending on how quickly this occurs the new procedure may be implemented for use during the regional regulatory and planning agency’s review of Cape Wind.

For a copy of the draft resolution go to http://www.capecodcommission.org/regulatory/revdraftprocedures.pdf or call the Cape Cod Commission at 508-362-3828.

A Cape Cod Commission subcommittee opens public hearings on the Cape Wind project at 5 p.m. Sept. 6 at the Mattacheese Middle School Auditorium, 400 Higgins Crowell Road, West Yarmouth. Further hearings may take place as needed.
