Questions at Clayton wind forum

Listen to this story
More than 100 people with questions about wind power attended a forum in Clayton last night. Three different developers have proposed industrial-scale wind farm projects in northern Jefferson County. All are in preliminary stages. The forum was one of several held statewide by the Citizens Campaign for the Environment. The group supports wind power that includes a complete environmental review. Jefferson County's Agricultural Development Authority co-sponsored the event. Citizen Campaign's Derreth Glance moderated the forum. She told David Sommerstein people wanted to know about access roads for turbines, payment-in-lieu-of-tax agreements, and turbine bird mortality. She says they were especially interested in the words of two Lewis County supervisors on the forum panel, who live by the Maple Ridge wind farm on the Tug Hill Plateau.
