Kudos to Clayton and I hope they stand tough to defend such a law if they pass it. I have been saying for a decade local towns should grab the bull by the horns and do this. Imagine if Cape Vincent had done this a number of years back when that town board had a super majority to enact a ban and if Clayton does it now, then you would have sent a clear distinct message to the state that we intend to protect at least the Clayton, CV section of the river as a unified political force.
There are too many people who think the State Art 10 process will protect us when in fact it is a rigged system. People write letters to the NYPSC indicating they don't want industrial wind in our region. Problem is they are out of sync, since up till now most town laws have attempted to accommodate wind in some forms to appease the state in the Art 10 process
