SARNIA – Suncor Energy and a citizen’s group opposing its Cedar Point Wind Power Project are taking their case to the public this summer.
Suncor has scheduled three public open houses in August about its plan to build as many as 62 wind turbines in Plympton-Wyoming, Lambton Shores and Warwick Township.
The open houses are set for 6-9 p.m. Aug. 21 at the Camlachie Community Centre, Aug. 22 at the Forest Legion and Aug. 23 at Centennial Hall in Watford.
“Our intent will be to show a draft layout where turbines could be for the Cedar Point project, and gather feedback about those possible, or proposed locations,” said Suncor’s Michael Southern.
The group We’re Against Industrial Turbines – Plympton-Wyoming (WAIT-PW) is holding a town hall meeting July 31 at 7 p.m. at Camlachie Community Centre.
Member Ron Schenk said speakers will include a wildlife expert and Blenheim’s Nikki Horton, who says her family has suffered health problems since a wind farm was built nearby.
Concern about the wind farm is growing in the community, said Schenk, adding the group has handed out more than 600 anti-turbine signs.
“If you drive through Plympton-Wyoming, the signs are up.”
