Upcoming Meeting

Meeting 7PM, Monday night, July 19, on proposed Extension of the Industrial Wind Energies Facilities Moratorium Law

There will be a public meeting this coming Monday night, July 19, on the proposed Extension of the Industrial Wind Energies Facilities Moratorium Law of 2010. The Hearing by the Prrattsburgh Town Board will be held at the Prattsburgh Town Hall, 19 North Main Street, Prattsburgh, New York at 7PM.

The purpose of the hearing is for public comment on the proposed extension of the Industrial Wind Energy Facilities Moratorium Law. The intent of the law is to impose a further six (6) month moratorium on construction of and/or receipt and processing of applications for Industrial Wind Energy Facilities, their infrastructure and their support facilities in the Town of Prattsburgh.

All citizens concerned about adequate setbacks from their property lines to address noise and threats to health, safety and property values should attend this very important meeting. You can get a copy of the proposed Industrial Wind Energy Facilities Moratorium Law at the Office of the Town Clerk during regular business hours.

Please make every effort to attend.

Windmill Myths
MYTH # 10: The taxes or payments these wind companies will pay will all be “extra” money.
Fact: In similar locales, non-leasing adjacent landowners have experienced a significant drop in property values, in some cases 20-40%. The potential flight of landowners and reductions in the value of recreational, vacation home and retirement property could have a severe negative impact on tax revenues. And now there are concerns that the State would also reduce payments to towns and schools, claiming we’ll no longer need the money.
