Lyme extends wind moratorium  

The Lyme town board decided Monday night to extend its moratorium on a proposed wind project for another three months.

That, as some residents urged the board to make the moratorium much longer.

BP Energy proposes 60 wind turbines for the town.

“Right now, we’ve gotta look at the setback issues, the noise issues,” said town supervisor Scott Aubertine.

At least three town residents proposed longer moratoriums – from six months to ‘indefinite.’

“One to five years minimum,” said one resident. “We should really study before we go ahead with this.”

As is the case in other north country towns, Lyme residents are divided over important questions – how noisy and environmentally damaging the wind towers are; how far they should be kept away from water front properties; what sort of deal should be struck with the developer.
