Falmouth Town Meeting
ARTICLE 23: To see if the Town will vote to continue suspended operation of Wind I and continue curtailment of suspended operation of Wind II, except for periods required for further study or ordinary maintenance of either turbine, until the November 2012 Annual Town Meeting at which time concerns for both turbines can be addressed in the context of studies and mitigation options funded by Town Meeting in November 2011 as well as a new turbine currently under development by the Planning Board. Or do or take any other action on this matter. On request of Barry Funfar and others.
RECOMMENDATION (Board of Selectmen): Indefinite postponement.
EXPLANATION: The Board of Selectmen continues to be engaged in a formal review of mitigation alternatives related to the operations of Wind I and Wind II, and is exploring the potential for consensus building. This process is ongoing and it would be inappropriate and premature to make a decision before all reasonable options and alternatives are fully reviewed.
