Wind turbines are subject of discussion at CILU meeting Monday night

In an effort to learn more about the potential of wind turbines as a source of alternative energy, and the issues surrounding their siting near residential areas, the Holmdel-based Citizens for Informed Land Use (CILU) is hosting a panel discussion for the public at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10 at the Holmdel Senior Community Center.

The three speakers who have been invited to address the forum have been critical of the Bayshore Regional Sewerage Authority’s plan to erect a wind turbine at its plant in Union Beach, which is adjacent to a residential area. John Curran of HAQLA (Hazlet Area Quality of Life Alliance), Bart Sutton of the Union Beach Environmental Trust, and Bill Heller, who hosts the website noturbine.com, have warned that the BRSA turbine will be devastating to human health and property values.

CILU President Anthony Cooper said, “We’d like to give CILU members the opportunity to learn a little bit more about the current discussion.” A question and answer period will follow.

He said the group would welcome hearing also from BRSA wind turbine supporters. “If they want to give a comment or offer to give a talk…we would encourage them.”

CILU has a membership of about 200 people, said Cooper. About 50 typically attend meetings with featured speakers, who have spoken on climate change, and the NY/NJ Baykeeper oyster project. In recent months the group has sponsored a hike in Cheesequake Park with a naturalist, a guided eco-cruise through Raritan Bay and around Staten Island, and held a picnic at Veterans Park.
