THE GRAPHIC ABOVE SHOWS -TO SCALE- THE SETBACK DISTANCE  CURRENTLY SUGGESTED BY THE TOWN BOARD

TWO TIMES THE TURBINE HEIGHT FROM A RESIDENCE

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 TOWN BOARD IS CURRENTLY PROPOSING

ONLY TWO TIMES THE TURBINE HEIGHT TO A RESIDENCE (1300')

 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 

THE TOWN BOARDS CURRENT WIND LAW PROPOSAL IS NOT SAFE!!

A 650' TURBINE SETBACK FROM A HOME AT ONLY 1300' IS UNTHINKABLE

THANKS TO THE GUILFORD TOWN BOARD THIS MAY SOON BE A REALITY FOR GUILFORD RESIDENTS

HOW BIG ARE THE PROPOSED TURBINES ?

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.

thank you to all who attended the town board meeting

we will post here when the next meeting is scheduled

Type your paragraph here.

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

ONLY TWO TURBINES AT THIS SIZE, ON LAND, EXIST IN THE WORLD

ONE IN GERMANY AND ONE IN TEXAS

CALPINE WANTS TO CONSTRUCT UP TO 30 IN GUILFORD

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

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
