War over wind heats up in Lyme  

It’s a war over wind turbines and it’s being waged among neighbors.

The debate has been heated in Cape Vincent over a proposed wind farm, and now it is heating up in the Town of Lyme.

British Petroleum presented plans Saturday for the wind farm that would stretch across both towns.

Meanwhile, outside some Town of Lyme resident took the opportunity to shout their opposition.

The protesters not only knocked the wind farm proposal, but they also called out neighbors who support bringing wind power into the neighborhood.

British Petroleum wants to put up 140 wind turbines in the area.

While protesters say they will stand up to anyone who supports the idea, property owners who look forward to the wind power wind fall say they won’t stand down.

The plans for the wind farm are still in the early stages according to British Petroleum. The plans specifically for the Town of Lyme won’t be completed until December.

Zoning still has to be approved as well and construction wouldn’t begin until 2009.
