Passadumkeag Mountain group to discuss wind farm at cookout

TOWNSHIP 3 ND, Maine – The volunteer citizens group Passadumkeag Mountain Friends will hold a cookout Sunday to tell people about a 14-turbine wind-to-energy project slated for Passadumkeag Mountain. The public is invited.

The cookout will be held at Nicatous Lodge, about 15 miles southeast of Burlington, from noon to 2 p.m. Event co-organizer Elizabeth Johns said she sees much in common between Passadumkeag Mountain and the terrain the Land Use Regulation Commission protected when it rejected First Wind’s proposal to build on Bowers Mountain earlier this year.

“This [Passadumkeag Mountain project] will be in view of five lakes of significant or outstanding natural resource value,” Johns said Tuesday, “and also in view of Passadumkeag River for extensive sections of the river. It is certainly in the same neighborhood [as Bowers]. Nicatous Lake is an outstanding resource for scenic value.”
