Orange voters don’t want wind facility

Orange – Residents at Town Meeting this week expressed overwhelming opposition to a proposed wind tower project near Cardigan Mountain.

Orange residents voted, 117-7, on Tuesday to oppose the so-called Spruce Ridge Wind Project, which could involve the installation of 29 wind turbines in the Cardigan region.

By a 123-2 vote, they also said any company proposing to build an industrial wind facility that might be located in Orange would have to post a bond in an amount determined by the Orange Selectboard and Planning Board “to cover the cost of removal and disposal of the wind facility and the remediation of the landscape” if the power complex were shut down.

Eleven of 12 articles on the warrant passed, including a $241,200 town budget, marking a 1.8 percent increase in spending.

The lone defeated measure was a measure recommended by the Selectboard to change the town treasurer position from an elected to an appointed job.

There were no contested elections. No one had filed to fill a three-year seat on the Selectboard. It was won by George White. – Staff report
