Building Commissioner rejects turbine requests

KINGSTON – Building Commmissioner Paul Armstrong has concluded that the Planning Board’s site plan approvals and subsequent building permits for the wind turbine Independence and three wind turbines on business owner Mary O’Donnell’s Marion Drive property are valid despite claims to the contrary.

With Armstrong’s decision, attorney Christopher Senie, who represents 11 Kingston families hoping to prevent operation of the Independence and stop operation of O’Donnell’s turbines, said his clients are deciding whether they will appeal Armstrong’s decision to the Zoning Board of Appeals.

On behalf of the Country Club Way, Leland Road and Copper Beach Drive families, Senie requested that Armstrong issue cease and desist orders for both projects.

Senie said if his clients decide to appeal, he anticipates the ZBA would schedule a public hearing on the appeal in June. Armstrong declined to act on those requests.
