Renew the wind moratorium
To the Editor:
As the helpful and sincere Carlo Puiia mentioned, it is time to renew the moratorium before it expires.
We do not have any idea what the greedy mountain environmental butchers will do if they are allowed take over and manipulate our personal and private resources merely to line their pockets.
It is time to protect the rural Rumford area people and the beautiful mountain land we have kept safe within our families for many generations, and to not sacrifice what we have cherished for all these years just to let these people swarm in on a temporary money-making opportunity.
It is imperative that our property lines and land be protected from the greed and take-advantage attitudes of the windmill power companies. Any setbacks and roads built should be at the windmill company's expense and not at the expense of our beautiful land and our own personal landowner rights. There should be no leniency with regards to setbacks, shadow flicker, and a decommissioning plan. We have paid taxes for many more decades than the windmills will ever last as even competitive table conversation.
Landowners are not to be taken advantage of, but to be respected and considered when making judgements on windmill ordinances. All decommissioning funds need to be obtained in full before any development is allowed to occur, and we should not be so eager to sacrifice our land and our assets to promote a "not as green as you would think" approach to power.
Town mountains do not belong to Buccina and the selectmen, but it is the selectmen that are the ones making decisions that will impact the private land owners and our town mountains. Thank you to Buccina and Volkernick for the serious work they are doing to protect the private land owners and our hundreds of acres of beautiful rural Maine land.
