VN 10/24 - A Moratorium?

A lot has happened in Cohocton since UPC Wind unveiled their massive wind power proposal in April, but in many ways things are no clearer now than they were 6 months ago. Serious problems with the developer's Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and the SEQR process, conflicts with the Town's Comprehensive Zoning Plan, and a worsening division in the community have surfaced. Now another developer, Empire Wind Energy, has arrived on the scene with an alternative that might answer concerns on both sides of the controversy. How do we move forward? Our article in this week's Valley News recommends a Moratorium on wind power development in our Town and the establishment of a community forum to work out the problems. Is our current leadership up to the challenge, or are they arriving at the table with their minds already made up? Please read our article and then come out to tonight's Public Meeting at the Cohocton Elementary School to voice your opinion.

The folley of the circular letters written by YES members in the Valley News takes my breath away. "We need to do this" Why? Because we need to uphold our leases. "It's good for the town" Why? The money is good for the town.

If these folks are so damn smart and practical as they boast --- why don't they practice "If something seems too good to be true, it usually is"? How can anyone say in good faith that industrializing a rural residential area will not present any problems for the people who have to live with them as neighbors?
