Re : 2010 Installation of the Falmouth Massachusetts wind turbine

On June 17.2009 Massachusetts DCR Commissioner Rick Sullivan, DOER Commissioner Philip Giudice and members of panel hosted a wind turbine listening session held at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. MMA is located at 101 Academy Drive, Buzzards Bay, MA 02532 next to the Town of Falmouth.

In 2009 a meeting was held to solicit comments from the public about wind turbine siting. The comment period was for the first attempt of the proposed Wind Energy Siting Reform Act,WESRA.

Three public comments are below warning about set back issues from the public in 2009 . These public comments warned about setbacks from residential homes. Over 50 Falmouth residents are sick over the poor siting of a commercial wind turbine. The public comments from 2009 fell on deaf ears of the state officials holding the meetings in 2009 .

The state of Massachusetts officials and politicians were well aware of the dangers of siting a commercial wind turbine in residential areas prior to the 2010 Falmouth installation.
