Alexandria, vote yes on Article 16 to stop wind turbine project  

Credit:  Laconia Citizen | Feb 10, 2015 | thecitizen.villagesoup.com ~~

The residents of Alexandria are facing the threat of an industrial wind turbine project. The Spruce Ridge Project by Energias de Portugal (EDP) is threatening the health, safety and welfare of local residents and the surrounding ecosystems of Alexandria.

Dealing with these industrial wind corporations is like playing a game of chess. You plan and strategize and try to figure out what’s their next move and plans are; and just when you think you have a well planned strategy, things change . Everytime you play, you learn different strategies and you get better.

Alexandria learned from a lawsuit brought by EDP against the town, over a met tower building permit that our current RBO(Community Bill of Rights Ordinance) didn’t address the future plans the industrial wind developer has for our community. We needed a new RBO to protect us better.

Article 16 on the Alexandria 2015 warrants prohibits wind resource extraction and strengthens the current RBO, which prohibits the siting of new energy projects. The new RBO is meant to compliment the existing one not to replace it.

Just like in chess, if the queen stands with the king, it makes it harder to overcome you.

We are a community that needs to stand united. We are all pawns but together we stand strong! Come out and vote on March 10 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Alexandria Old Town Hall. Vote yes on Article 16 !
