Town Budget Referendum Today – Whalerock Wednesday

Charlestown Financial Referendum
Today, Monday, June 3 – 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Charlestown Town Hall


Next Whalerock Hearing
Wednesday, June 5 – 7:00 p.m.
Charlestown Elementary School

Two utility scale wind turbines with a blade tip height of approximately 410 feet are proposed for land abutting residential neighborhoods, and near the National Wildlife Refuge, and State, Tribal and Private Conservation Areas in Charlestown. The Charlestown Zoning Board will continue the hearing for a special use permit to build and operate the two wind turbines on Wednesday.

Wednesday’s continued hearing should be interesting when the developer wraps up their presentation, and the presentation begins by Town Solicitor Peter Ruggiero, and John Mancini, the Special Counsel hired by the Town Council.

The presentation by the applicant on May 21 did not appear to include any new information or any information beyond what was included in the October 2010 application. That application is available online by going to ClerkBase at the Town’s website, then look on the left and click on “Zoning Commission Agendas“, then click on the June 5 agenda, and in the middle of that page you’ll find PDF files containing the application.
