Circle Power amends its wind farm plans  

Credit:  www.keweenawreport.com ~~

Circle Power executive Chris Moore said his company intends to double the number of wind turbines in its development proposal for Adams Township at a Monday meeting of the Board of Trustees. Originally, four were slotted for the municipality with another eight set for neighboring Stanton Township. The Stanton sites have been withdrawn, at least temporarily.

Adams Township Supervisor Gerald Heikkinen revealed to the board that a Freedom of Information Act request had been filed by the Varnum Law Firm out of Grand Rapids. They are seeking documentation about the reconvening of Adams’ Planning Commission, which could potentially create restrictions that would severely limit the potential scope of the development.

The summary of the meeting has been provided by the Guardians of the Keweenaw Ridge. Spokesman James Mihelcic says, “Community members will not support a failed plan wrapped in different packaging. Over the past several months local residents have voiced countless concerns on how the proposed project would negatively affect the health and well-being of homeowners, property values, and local wildlife.”

Keweenaw Report has reached out to Heikkinen and Moore for comment on the situation, but has not heard back from either party as of noon Tuesday.
