The floodgates of wind turbine developers are coming to those communities who do not support the Arran-Elderslie bylaw.
Melanthon’s lawyer, Mr. Osyany, has advised Melancthon Council to not support the Arran-Elderslie bylaw.
A letter from him was read aloud at the last Melancthon council meeting. My husband suggested that our Council contact Arran-Elderslie, and Grey Highlands to find out why they and 20 other Municipalities do support the Arran-Elderslie bylaw; and how they are planning to defend their position.
There is a closed-door meeting of our Melancthon Council on Tuesday, July 13, at 8:30 a.m. in the Council Chambers regarding the agreement between the Township of Melancthon and International Power Corporation regarding Plateau III Wind Farm. This is in addition to the 401 Energy Wind Project.
Also of utmost importance is to notify citizens of a Draft Official Plan meeting on Thursday, July 15, at 6:00 p.m.
The mapping for our Draft 2010 Melancthon Official Plan is completed by Melancthon Township planner G. W. Jorden.
What is on the “Land Use” Draft Official Plan review is whether the OP protects our source water resources, and prime agricultural cropland, against mining, turbines, rail, roads and cumulative water taking.
How are all Land Use interests balanced in this Draft Official Melancthon OP? This is not just a local issue, because if the Highland quarry proceeds, water drawdown could affect communities as far away as Simcoe.
