State questions Colony Place turbine; ZBA continues Colony Place turbine hearing

PLYMOUTH – According to attorney Ed Angley, the Mass. Department of Transportation told Saxon Partners LLC that its plan to erect a wind turbine in Colony Place was OK by the state.

The missive arrived via e-mail. But Mass. DOT engineer Wallace McCarroll arrived by car, Wednesday night, to tell the Zoning Board of Appeals that Saxon’s proposal doesn’t meet the state’s criteria for property line setbacks and that the Mass. DOT is concerned about shadow flicker effect and the fall zone of the structure, which is proposed near Route 44.

McCarroll’s announcement came as a surprise in the wake of the positive e-mail, and the Zoning Board of Appeals voted unanimously, later, to continue the hearing to 7:45 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 2 to await the state’s final say on the matter in the form of a letter.
