Commissioners to consider turbine DCPC request  

Credit:  Falmouth Enterprise ~~

Last week the Falmouth Planning Board submitted to the Barnstable County Board of Commissioners a formal request to have Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee, and sandwich delcared a District of Critical Planning Concern (DCPC), a move that would temporarily block all land-based wind turbine development.

The commissioners received the letter last Wednesday afternoon, but according to Mary L. (Pat) Flynn, chairman of the county commissioners, the commissioners would not take the issue up in earnest until next month.

Because there is a possibility that the DCPC could be expanded to encompass the entire region, the county commissioners have issued letters to selectmen and town councilors in each Cape Cod town to gauge their support or opposition to a Cape-wide DCPC.
