Pittsford wants wind moratorium

PITTSFORD – A third municipal board wants a temporary halt on commercial wind projects in the region until more studies can be completed on the potential impacts of large scale turbines.

Town officials in Pittsford recently unanimously signed a resolution requesting the Rutland Regional Planning Commission executive board pass a resolution calling for a three-year moratorium on wind development in Rutland County.

They have joined the towns of Clarendon and Danby, whose Select Boards sought a moratorium resolution by the regional commission last month.

“It was an audience request at a prior meeting,” said John Haverstock, Pittsford’s town manager. “The board decided to put it on the (Oct. 3) agenda and took action.”

Haverstock was referencing a meeting in September where a concern resident read the statement approved by the Clarendon board asking the regional commission to take a position that would allow municipal the time to review town plans and assess the benefits and impacts of wind energy.

With the recent action, the town of Pittsford echoes the belief some people that the proposed wind project on the Grandpa’s Knob ridgeline is not just an issue for the four host towns, but a regional issue.
