Rumford wind ordinance ready for Nov. 8 vote
To the Editor:
The Rumford select board has a new Wind Ordinance ready for the citizens. It lets the Rumford citizens control what happens in the Town of Rumford instead of it being controlled at the state level.
Each section of this wind ordinance was reviewed and adapted specifically for the town. It provides adequate protection for the town and its citizens while providing protection for landowner rights by allowing them to waive the rights afforded to them by the ordinance. This new proposed ordinance also includes a community benefits package which could be very beneficial to the town.
This ordinance was approved unanimously by the Rumford select board. Please vote "yes" on November 8th for this new wind ordinance and let Rumford make decisions that will benefit this area and protect the people of Rumford.
