Lyme residents, BP Energy speak on proposed windmill setbacks  

More than one hundred people showed up Saturday to a public hearing on a proposed change to local law that regulates windmills in the Town of Lyme.

The proposal before the town board includes setbacks of 4500 feet from Lake Ontario and the Chaumont River.

People at Saturday’s public hearing were on both sides of the wind debate.

Also at the public hearing was a representative from BP Energy which wants to build wind turbines in the town.

BP Energy’s representative told the town board the 4500 foot setbacks is too restrictive and if passed BP would no longer want to put wind turbines in the the Town of Lyme.

Those in favor of the proposed setbacks say its far enough to cut down on the noise each windmill makes.
