THREE MILE BAY — In an effort to make its “small wind law” proposal more reasonable, town officials are considering allowing residents to install personal turbines up to 125 feet tall.
Initially, Lyme planners, who were given the task to draft zoning rules for private turbines, wanted to keep the structures at or below 80 feet.[Watertown times]NOTE:
In 2008, a group of land owners filed a lawsuit against the town of Lyme because they felt that Lyme's law effectively banned the development of wind-generating facilities within the town.
Mr. Kingsley was one of the Plaintiffs in this Article 78 proceeding against the town of Lyme.
BP outreach specialist Marion Trieste talks about the about the above mentioned lawsuit in a
case study included in a NYSERDA educational brochure, directed at school children.
