Wind farm opponents to host Freeport summit

FREEPORT – The Harraseeket Inn will sponsor a Mountaintop Industrial Wind Legislative Summit on Saturday, Feb. 12.

The summit will start at 8 a.m. and run until 4 p.m.

Individuals and members of activist groups from across Maine will convene to coordinate their efforts and develop strategies for supporting the many protective bills that have been submitted to the state Legislature this year.

“These bills focus on requiring fiscal responsibility in our energy practices, protecting Mainers’ health and property values, and requiring open and transparent dealings between wind developers and state and local officials and agencies,” according to a statement by Jonathan Carter, director of the Forest Ecology Network and an opponent of a plan to develop a wind farm in Highland Plantation in Franklin County.

The Harraseeket Inn is at 162 Main St. For more information on the summit call Nancy Gray at 865-9377.
