Panel favors moratorium on wind farms

PROSPECT – A draft resolution by a Town Council subcommittee would call for state legislators to place a moratorium on wind energy projects until state minimum standards are created.

The resolution, which hasn’t been finalized yet, would recommend the Town Council to support renewable energy projects, acknowledge its responsibility to safeguard residents’ health, welfare, quality of life, safety and economic stability and support town land use and local health boards in establishing regulations for these projects.

It also would support Mayor Robert J. Chatfield’s appearance before the Connecticut Siting Council as the town’s representative, asking the siting council to take time to consider all information and give residents’ concerns maximum weight.

The four-member subcommittee spent nearly three hours Saturday at Town Hall deciding to recommend a resolution to Town Council for an official town response to a proposed wind turbine project here. It will meet again at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to finish the resolution before the Town Council meeting.
