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 # 12: They can’t put these towers THAT CLOSE to my property.
Fact: Prattsburgh has no zoning protection for non-participating landowners. The edge of the rotating blades for these towers can be sited as close as 374 FEET from your property line (489' from the tower base). The leasing landowners have a say regarding where their towers are placed on their property, you DON’T. Will they want these nearly 400’ noisemaking industrial towers near their house, or NEAR YOURS (or where you want to build your future home)?
