KINGSTON – A group called Kingston Wind Aware will hold an informational forum Thursday, June 7, to discuss the topic of wind energy in the community. This local organization, intends to present a background discussion of how Kingston became home to four “industrial-size” wind turbines. In addition, the group says experts in the field will discuss possible adverse health effects and why they are concerned for the 1,100 students studying within 2,000 feet of the Independence turbine and 3,000-plus feet of the others. This group considers this a critical session for anyone interested in how they, or their children, may be impacted and what’s in store for the future.
The event will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at Kingston Intermediate School auditorium.
