The Town Council, in its formal review of BP Wind Energy’s preliminary scoping statement, described what it calls several shortcomings in the developer’s statement on the proposed Cape Vincent Wind Farm.

Town officials said BP has “subtly mischaracterized” Cape Vincent throughout its statement to fit its purposes and development plans.

In the review, officials once again argued the proposed project does not fit the community’s vision for future development laid out in the town’s Comprehensive Plan.

“What will be evident to whomever reads the plan and the town’s PSS review in the following pages is that BP’s project, comprised of 124, five-hundred-foot-high wind turbines, is not a good fit for the town of Cape Vincent,” they wrote.
