R.I. Community Moves To Ban Wind Turbines

The Boston Globe reports that North Kingstown, R.I., officials are moving to ban wind turbines in all parts of the town except Quonset, which does not fall under the town's zoning authority.

The Town Council directed the town's planning staff Monday to draft an ordinance amending zoning regulations to prohibit wind turbines.Â

The paper also reports that some local residents are fighting two wind turbines proposed by Wind Energy Development LLC. The developer is planning to appeal the town's decisions.
