Shagg Pond camp owner for ordinance  

Credit:  The Bethel Citizen | March 14, 2013 | www.bethelcitizen.com ~~

I applaud Bob Elliot and other members of the Woodstock wind ordinance committee for their dedication and work on the wind ordinance.

Assuming the voters of Woodstock support the ordinance, their sacrifice of time and energy will benefit us and future generations who value the beauty and peace of our lovely western mountains by preventing further degradation of our landscape.

My family has owned a rustic cabin on Shagg Pond in Woodstock for over 40 years. Each spring the extended family negotiate for their vacation time in the quiet and solstice of the pond. It is such a respite from the stress and demands of our lives. We were all extremely disappointed last summer to arrive and be confronted with nine wind turbines directly in front of the cottage. Even more disturbed by the loud jet plane noise that came up and did not recede at random times during our stays. We as summer residents, although taxpayers, were poorly informed of the plans for these turbines, had no say in their approval and are receiving no benefit from their electricity. We discovered that one of my brothers who lives in Concord, Mass., actually has the choice to choose the green energy generated by these turbines.

I urge residents to support the wind ordinance and its efforts to limit noise and intrusion of further wind turbines on the landscape of our area.
