Airport gets support for turbine objections  

Credit:  by Catherine Thompson, www.bayshorebroadcasting.ca 28 June 2011 ~~

Collingwood council is supporting the local airport’s opposition of a planned wind turbine development in Clearview Township..

The Airport Services Board says the re-dreawn map of the turbine farm puts one of the windmills within two kilometres of the main runway.

W.P.D. is proposing eight turbines at County Road 91 and Fairgrounds Road.

Deputy Mayor Rick Lloyd is a member of the airport board. He says the turbine will be right in the flight path of planes including medevac helicopters which sometimes have to land at the airport if bad weather prevents them from making it to the hospital.

Council will also send notification of the opposition to its airport services board partners, Wasaga Beach and Clearview Township.

Clearview township passed a similar motion at its meeting last night.

The airport board is planning on making its position known at a public meeting on the wind turbine project in Stayner on July 13th.
