Indian Pond neighbors file cease and desist order to stop turbines

Eleven Kingston families are requesting that Zoning Enforcement Officer Paul Armstrong issue separate cease and desist orders to prevent operation of the wind turbine Independence on the town’s capped landfill and stop operation of the three wind turbines on business owner Mary O’Donnell’s Marion Drive property.

In both requests, filed through their attorney, the Country Club Way, Leland Road and Copper Beach Drive residents are challenging the validity of the site plan approval and building permits for the four wind turbines. O’Donnell’s three wind turbines are operational, while the Kingston Wind turbine is expected to be operational by mid-May.

In both of the letters to Armstrong, attorney Christopher Senie states that the wind turbines, which are larger than the turbines causing distress to residents in Falmouth, “can create a thumping, pulsing, variable, amplitude modulated, lower frequency sound pressure which travels a considerable distance from the turbines.”

“The required seriousness was absent from the site plan application process undertaken in this case,” he writes in both.

According to Armstrong, he has not yet acted on these requests dated Monday, April 9. Armstrong received them the next day. that he received April 10 on the second night of Town Meeting.
