Allegany Board may decide on wind moratorium
The Allegany Town Board may consider tonight a plan to halt future wind farms.The town board has held off on giving the go-ahead for any new wind farm development…saying the newly elected town board needed time to research the issue. According to published reports, town Supervisor John Hare has said he felt the new Board needed more time to examine the issue and the impact of any new development. The Board is considering placing a six month moratorium on issuing any new building or zoning permits for any new construction. A previous Board already gave the green light for Ever Power Wind to construct 29 wind turbines in the town. It’s been a controversial issue. Tonight’s meeting will be held at the Senior Center.
