LOOK AT THE BOTTOM LEFT OF THIS GRAPHIC
WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE IN THIS HOME?
THE GUILFORD TOWN BOARD IS CURRENTLY WRITING OUR WIND LAW
IT'S IMPERATIVE THAT THEY WRITE A TRULY PROTECTIVE WIND LAW
NYS IS A HOME RULE STATE:
This means that the local level (the Guilford Town Board) has more authority than the county level or state level
DONATIONS ARE NEEDED AND GREATLY APPRECIATED. PLEASE CLICK THE ABOVE BUTTON FOR INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO DONATE
People who are against the high bridge project are not against
wind power or renewable energy.
What we are against is 650’-675' turbines being built too close to homes and people’s property lines.
Our top concern is for the health and wellbeing of the PEOPLE!
That’s All people within and around the proposed project, especially those who own and live on non-host properties.
AS IT IS WRITTEN INTO THE NYS CONSTITUTION
THE LOCAL LEGISLATORS (TOWN BOARD) ARE OBLIGATED TO PROTECT OUR
HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELFARE
THE GRAPHIC ABOVE SHOWS -TO SCALE- THE SETBACK DISTANCE CURRENTLY SUGGESTED BY THE TOWN BOARD
TWO TIMES THE TURBINE HEIGHT FROM A RESIDENCE ( OR 1500')
ONE AND A QUARTER TIMES THE TURBINE HEIGHT FROM A NON HOST PROPERTY LINE
THIS COULD BE A FORCED REALITY FOR GUILFORD RESIDENTS IF THE TOWN BOARD DOESN'T CHANGE THESE UNSAFE SETBACK DISTANCES
TALK TO THE TOWN BOARD - TELL THEM THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE
THE DOCUMENTARY "WINDFALL" WAS MADE IN MEREDITH NY,
JUST OUTSIDE OF ONEONTA NY.
THIS IS THE TRAILER FOR WINDFALL.
IT RUNS TWO AND A HALF MINUTES AND IS A MUST WATCH!!
MEREDITH RESIDENTS WERE SUCCESSFUL IN STOPPING THE PROJECT, PARTS OF THIS TRAILER SHOWS INTERVIEWS FILMED IN NYS TOWNS THAT WERE
NOT ABLE TO STOP THEIR PROJECTS.
ONLY TWO TURBINES AT THIS SIZE, ON LAND, EXIST IN THE WORLD
ONE IN GERMANY AND ONE IN TEXAS
CALPINE WANTS TO CONSTRUCT 25 IN GUILFORD
676' ALLOWANCE HAS BEEN WRITTEN INTO OUR DRAFT WIND LAW BY THE GUILFORD TOWN BOARD
THE TOWN BOARD IS CURRENTLY PROPOSING
ONLY 1500' TO A RESIDENCE
ONLY ONE AND A QUARTER TIMES TO A NON HOST PROPERTY LINE (812.5')
ONLY 1300' TO SENSITIVE SIGHTS, CHANGED FROM 2 MILES
NO PROPERTY VALUE GUARANTEE (Real Property Value Protection Agreement)
THIS IS NOT A STATE PROJECT - THIS IS A PRIVATE PROJECT
THIS PROJECT IS BEING OVERSEEN BY THE STATE (ARTICLE 10)
THE LOCAL TOWN BOARD HAS INCREDIBLE AUTHORITY BY WRITING THE WIND LAW
HOW BIG ARE THE PROPOSED TURBINES ?
A protective wind law needs a:
Property value guarantee
A distance set-back of ten times the height of the turbine from an existing residence
A distance setback of five times the height of the turbine from property lines
A noise level no greater than 35 dBA 24/7 to a property line
