Usually you can delete comments in error, but "MO" was a locked screen and unable to do so.

Anyhow Mike, the situation in Falmouth is hugely complicated, but the Zoning Board of Appeals is not the party deserving of a lawsuit.

In fact the ZBA is the subject of litigation by the party most culpable in all this, the Town of Falmouth.

Is the Town's culpability mostly ignorance rather than deliberate malfeasance? Ten years ago, maybe.

But the partners in all this are the ratepayer surcharge-funded and RGGI-funded, and ARRA funded state agencies who limit rectification of hsrm to neighbors are at the same time as offering partial relief contingent on continuing daytime operations. They bought the turbines, they paid well over $400,000 for a process to find the best way forward in Falmouth, and other towns where they have offerred huge incentives with virtually no vetting process for the projects.

Slam the US fed govt today as you will, but the feds would have done much more thorough vetting if this was a direct application by the Town of Falmouth for a federal low interest loan on this very small project causing harm to so many people.

It seems the zoning board is willfully negligent. I hope they can be sued for damages as individuals as well as sued as a town entity

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
