Somerset Moves Quickly to Approve Legislation to Permit Commercial Windmill Construction

Somerset, NY (PRWEB) March 30, 2006 –- The Windmill Committee of the Town of Somerset has completed the first drafts of legislation that will permit the construction of commercial Windmills by AES Somerset LLC, and of residential Windmills by the Town’s residents.

The Town’s Windmill Committee has sent both drafts to the Town’s Planning Board for review. The Planning Board will meet Monday, April 3, at 7 p.m., to review and discuss the new legislation. If the Planning Board completes its review in April, then the Town Board will address the new legislation at its Tuesday, May 9, meeting.

The Town’s Windmill Committee formed in February 2006. If the currently fast-paced project continues at this rate, the Town may adopt legislation that permits the construction of commercial and residential Windmills by June or July.

In the meantime, at the invitation of the Town of Somerset, managers from AES Somerset LLC will make a presentation that will provide information and answer questions about the construction of commercial Windmills. The meeting will take place at the Barker Fire Hall on Tuesday, April 4, 2006. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
