Zoning Board of Appeals declares Wind 1 a nuisance  

Credit:  THE BULLETIN | Posted May 14, 2013 | www.wickedlocal.com ~~

Falmouth Zoning Board of Appeals decided 4-1 on May 9 that Falmouth’s Wind 1 turbine located at the town’s Wastewater Treatment Facility is a nuisance. Neil Andersen of 211 Blacksmith Shop Road appealed the earlier denial by Falmouth Building Commissioner, Eladio Gore.

The board’s ruling comes before the town’s May 21 Annual Town Election that includes a ballot question, Question 2, that asks voters to support funding the removal of both Wind 1 and Wind 2.

MA DEP previously found noise exceedances after sampling sound from the two utility scale turbine, and the turbine operations were then curtailed from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m.

Falmouth neighbors have been registering noise and health complaints ever since the first turbine started turning in March 2010.
