Special Town Meeting Set in Falmouth on Wind Turbines 

WIND TURBINEFALMOUTH – A special town meeting has been scheduled in Falmouth to deal with the latest controversy surrounding two wind turbines.

The town’s twin, 397-foot-tall turbines were erected at a wastewater treatment plant in 2009. One was temporarily shut down after the Massachusetts Court of Appeals ruled that it was built without proper zoning approval.

The Zoning Board of Appeals voted on Sept. 17 to issue a cease-and-desist order.

Residents have also complained about the turbines’ health effects for years, saying the noise and shadow flicker from the blades of the turbines are harmful to them.

Selectmen last night voted to hold a special town meeting Nov. 10 at the Falmouth Public Library after the regular fall town meeting..

Chairman Doug Jones says the board plans to submit an article concerning the town’s turbine bylaw and another on the potential loss of revenue, should one or both of the turbines be shut down.
