Falmouth selectmen table turbine discussion

After a one-and-a-half hour closed executive session meeting, Falmouth selectman chairman Douglas H. Jones announced Monday afternoon, June 8, the board needs more information before deciding the future of the town’s two wind turbines at the wastewater treatment plant.

About 25 residents were waiting outside the selectmen meeting room door to hear the decision, but were told the board will meet again on Thursday, June 11, at 4 PM in executive session, followed by a public meeting at Falmouth Town Hall.

The June 8 meeting was spurred by last week’s decision by the state Supreme Judicial Court that denied a petition by the town to review a lower court decision stating Falmouth needed to secure a zoning permit before erecting Wind 1.

The town decided in 2009 it did not need zoning approval when it installed both turbines off Blacksmith Road.
