ARE KINGSTONS WIND TURBINES ILLEGAL?(BREAKING) KJ.com s explosive new findings
KINGSTON- The legality of Kingstons wind turbines stands in question today as KingstonJournal.com uncovers evidence to suggest that all four of Kingstons industrial-sized wind turbines may be out of compliance with existing town bylaws.
Kingstons Wind Overlay District Bylaw, which was approved by town meeting in April 2007, states wind-turbine applicants have the burden of proving that [shadow flicker] does not have significant adverse impact on neighboring or adjacent uses.
Yesterday afternoon, Kingston Town Planner Tom Bott told the Journal that he has never seen a flicker study for the [Mary] ODonnell turbines.
Mary ODonnells property along Marion Drive was added to Kingstons Wind-Overlay District in 2008 at town meeting.

The Journal also asked Bott for a copy of the flicker study pertaining to the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbine.
Its on our Web site, Bott said.
No document on the Kingston Planning Departments Web site makes any mention of possible shadow-flicker impacts stemming from the KWI Turbine specific to homes in Kingston.
Similarly, feasibility studies from the Kingston Green Energy Committee in 2008 do not mention flicker and only discuss a range of visibility, encompassing several towns within sight of the KWI Turbines physical structure but far beyond the much more localized impacts of shadow-flicker.
