LEMPSTER (AP) -- The company proposing a controversial wind farm on Mount Lempster has taken the first step in the state's evaluation process.

The developer, Community Energy Inc., has filed its application with the state Site Evaluation Committee, which voted unanimously to oversee the project at the request of residents and town officials.

Because the town doesn't have any zoning regulations, the company would have needed only a standard building permit for its 400-foot turbines. But the lack of zoning prompted the town to request a state review.

The application was more than 700 pages and took nearly two months to compile.
