Alexandria won't approve permit for wind-power developer

“My personal opinion is that these conditions have been met,” Tuthill said while a large group of residents opposed to what they call “industrial wind” power projects in the area watched from the audience.
Broome had stated at a previous meeting that he would not agree to sign a permit for the tower project because the town passed a Rights-Based Ordinance in March that asserts the town’s rights of self-determination on large new energy projects in town.
“But this is not the wind farm, this is a passive data collection device,” he said.
After the non-vote, Beliveau said the battle isn’t over. He did not return phone calls Wednesday asking for elaboration.
“You’ve made a choice, and it’s unfortunate,” he told selectmen.
“It would be unreasonable to assume the project is over,” Tuthill said.
