Voters in Unity, Maine, rejected a moratorium ordinance for wind towers that are more than 35 feet, the Morning Sentinel reports. About 70 people attended the annual town meeting, held at Unity Elementary School.
Selectman Maggie Wilcox says officials wanted to get an ordinance in place to protect the town until a more permanent ordinance could be developed for next year. Maine Municipal Association officials recommended the wording of the article as a guideline for the town, she adds.
But Selectman James P. Kenney says he did not think that the article, as written, would prevent anyone from putting up a wind turbine on his own property.
