Does anyone have more information regarding the nature of a DOC meeting in Augusta on 1/12/10 - comment deadline is 1/25/10. It appears to be a rule making meeting regarding Proposed 04-056 Chapter 3 "Designated scenic viewpoints ..... for consideration in the permitting of expedited wind energy development'. It was forwarded to me - so I am not sure where on the DOC page to find more info on it.
While perusing the DOC webpage - I came across a link to 'straw proposals' -- #3 is especially scary - I am going to paraphrase it but see link below for 'specifics' -- proposed Wind Farm siting committee to be composed of the head of the PUC, 2 representatives appointed by the governor and the chair of LURC and DEP (but these 2 will not be voting members) --
What is this all about?
