Barnstable shouldn’t cede turbine oversight to state  

Credit:  Cape Cod Times, www.capecodonline.com 29 October 2011 ~~

The town of Barnstable should not cede its authority for the oversight of the location of wind turbines to the commonwealth.

The town should take a definitive stand now against any bill on Beacon Hill that cedes that authority. I believe Councilwoman Ann Canedy has recommended that the town take such a definitive position on this issue.

As the recent controversy in Falmouth indicates, the noise from these turbines can cause a significant problem for those nearby. Also, if one objects to wind turbines located in Nantucket Sound based on their appearance from the shore, one should object to a win turbine located next to a residential neighborhood that has a much greater visual impact.
