Place The Power Back Where It Belongs! Vote In Favor Of The Wind Ordinance
After some discussion about the best venue to use, it was decided by the selectmen last night that a public hearing followed by a vote is how the purposed Wind Ordinance will, once again, be put before the town of Freedom. It was not clear if the vote will be by raised hand or secret ballot.
It was the Beaver Dam’s understanding that The Planning Board would be giving the public hearing, but by the sounds of last nights meeting it will be led by the Board of Selectmen. The public hearing will be held in the election hall on NOVEMBER 17, 2015 at 7:00 pm. All concerned residents are encouraged to attend and vote.
Squirrel: During last night’s meeting one of the topics of discussion was that Freedom’s value has increased by about 1.2 million from the previous year. The selectmen were not sure why and will be looking into it, but the fact remains that if, we, as residents don’t put some type of protection in place the possibility of more industrial wind turbines being erected in our town may happen. We all know what that means. Let’s not forget about the abatement looming over us that Freedom resident’s will be paying for because of the existing turbines.
Another squirrel: One of the residents present gave an update on the Sandford Hill property sold to Dirigo Timberlands. Trucks have come out steadily loaded with small wood. What this means nobody is sure, but the question is: is it being cleared to promote new tree growth or for some other reason?
The families would like to put forth the same questions to Freedom residents that we asked before:
We here at The Beaver Dam encourage Freedom resident’s to attend the meeting and vote the Wind Ordinance in! We really do need to put balance back into our lives and place the power back where it belongs, in the hands of the people who make up our community.
