Planning Board votes against Scobee Circle wind turbine

PLYMOUTH – They circled the wagons Monday night over a plan to site a 364-foot wind turbine on Scobee Circle.

More than 70 abutters and residents filled the seats in the Mayflower Room at Town Hall, many voicing vehement opposition to the proposal they say would destroy their quality of life, drastically reduce property values, be an overall nuisance and a possible health hazard.

“I think this is a behemoth stuck in a highly residential area,” Kevin Steel of North Triangle Drive told the board. “It’s the worst possible location a turbine could ever be located.”

A majority of Planning Board members agreed and voted against recommending the Zoning Board of Appeals grant the applicant, Sheava, LLC, a special permit to erect the structure. Planning Board Vice Chairman Paul McAlduff was the only vote in favor of the plan. Planning Board member Larry Rosenblum was not present.
