Camden, Maine selectboard hears opposition to proposal to site a windfarm on Ragged Mtn (one hour long version)
Camden's Town Hall was filled to overflowing Tuesday night as members of the newly-formed Friends of Ragged Mountain turned out in force to show and express to their town leaders their displeasure and opposition to a proposal to site windmills on the southern anchor of the Camden Hills: Ragged Mountain.
The more than four dozen opponents waited patiently for two hours before they came up on the agenda. But beginning with presentations by Friends' spokespersons Dorie Klein and Dana Strout, a long line of people spoke up challenging the validity of the process that had led up to the present situation, where the town of Camden was being pressured by persons or companies unknown to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a windpower feasibility study, that while it might lead to small reductions in energy costs, would certainly lead to logging bulldozing and blasting of the natural mountain environment. The selectboard expressed itself well served by the presentations and question and answer sessionRagged Mountain - Camden Energy Committee meeting 081210
August 13, 2010 10:36 AM PDT
The Camden Energy Committee met August 12th to discuss the proposal they will ask the Camden Selectboard to implement: a Ragged Mountain Wind Workgroup.
Listen to the 38 minute recording: It begins with 5 minute consideration of the cover letter, the remaining time focuses on details of the memo to the town selectboard: 12 minutes about how to use the Camden development director as part of the work group. Then a discussion for ten minutes on who should run the work group, and whether a 'sunset provision' for the work group should be added.
Fundraising discussion follows - need $50K-$70K for initial feasibility study. Finally a vote to accept the now-amended memo. The memo on the proposed Camden Mountain and cover letter will be considered at the August 17th meeting of the Camden Selectboard which will be held at the Camden yacht clubMaine Lobster Festival 2010 - Eco-Lobster Catch
