Sen. Therese Murray writes to Plymouth ZBA  

To the Members of the Plymouth Zoning Board of Appeals:

I write today to offer my comments on the proposed Hedges Pond turbine project in the Town of Plymouth. I have heard many valid and justified concerns about the possible effects and risks turbines may have on those living in close proximity to them. These are real concerns that are not to be taken lightly and it is my sincere hope that the ZBA fully examines all sides of this argument before making a decision.

It is my strong belief that Industrial size wind turbines do not belong in residential neighborhoods. Wind turbines have been a part of the renewable energy conversation in the Commonwealth for some time now and I support wind energy as it has the potential to save cities and towns thousands of dollars and reduce the negative environmental impacts to our Earth. However, we must ensure that municipalities can move forward with turbine projects while preserving the health and well-being of residents. No one should be subject to unnecessary discomfort as a result of any turbine and we need to site these projects responsibly.

Thank you for allowing me to comment on this and all turbine projects in the town of Plymouth. Please do not hesitate to contact me, if you have any questions or concerns.
