Don’t ruin this special place  

Credit:  Concord Monitor | June 10, 2013 | www.concordmonitor.com ~~

Recently I kayaked around Newfound Lake, a stunning and unique lake. It not only offers great beauty but also offers me a free drink during my expedition. It has always been my favorite lake. Its sweeping 360-degree water views from Bristol to Hebron are spectacular.

Newfound Lake is so highly regarded that many residents, both past and present, have donated their lands in hopes to preserve the lake’s charm. Yet despite this, the state is promoting industrial wind turbine sites all around this extraordinary place.

The promotion of the Groton Wind Farm with its 24 industrial turbines was done quietly and quickly. To many of us it was a surprise! That’s because wind farm developers announced their wind project plans shortly after summer residents left. It goes to show you how summer residents are valued.

If all proposed projects get built out, this wonderful, stunningly scenic place will be littered with 125 huge industrial wind turbines surrounding it. The viewshed will be ruined for the next 20 years.

I have summered in Bridgewater since the early 1970s. I strongly believe that industrial wind developments around this lake are a travesty we will regret. I am angry that the political climate of today has allowed such unjustified destruction of our Lakes Region. Please join me and the efforts of New Hampshire Wind Watch in battling this. You owe it to your soul. I ended my kayak trip and wrote this letter. Just goes to show you – the lake is also a great place to think.
