Wind, solar farms would scar the Adirondacks

Are you aware the Adirondack Park Agency has quietly made a move toward embracing industrial wind and solar development inside the Blue Line in its Nov. 9 “Policy on Renewable Energy Production and Energy Supply Guidance” document (https://apa.ny.gov/_assets/Agency%207%20Energy%20Policy%20-%2010-29-18.pdf)? We believe the impact of this decision would scar the Adirondacks forever.

Weigh in on this extremely important issue regarding the future of the Adirondacks at publiccomment@apa.ny.gov. Although the deadline is Dec. 3, don’t be dissuaded from voicing your concerns.

Learn what Gov. Cuomo’s “50 by 30” plan really means for the North Country and the Adirondacks. Support the principle of home rule in our New York State Constitution, and insist upon your right to control the future of your towns and counties. Your northern neighbors from Hopkinton and Parishville fought this battle for over two years.

Urge your local government to adopt a moratorium on wind and solar development to allow them time to research and create laws that will protect you from many negative health, environmental and economic impacts.

We believe all members of every community should be protected and fully informed whenever large wind and solar projects are under consideration. For more information visit nnywind.com or Facebook.com/CitizensForRuralPreservation.
