Decision time in Allegany

ALLEGANY – If Allegany Town Board members cast votes on Monday that allow a 29-wind turbine farm to be built in the hills of Knapp Creek and Chipmonk, officials in the neighboring town of Carrollton will have to decide on a road-use agreement for the transport of materials.

The historic vote, which has the potential to change the face of the area landscape, will take place at the 7 p.m. meeting Monday at the Allegany Senior Center on Birch Run Road. The town board will vote on the wind overlay district for the proposed wind farm. If the board votes “yes” on the proposal, the wind farm project will be approved.
