Resolution Opposing Wind Farm Development in Proximity to Fort Drum
WHEREAS protecting the North Country’s airspace is vital to Fort Drum’s future as the Army is continually evaluating the effectiveness of its training installations; and
WHEREAS wind farm development can be an important initiative to pursue as it offers an alternative green source of energy that is pollution free and generated at the source, and while we recognize the benefits of wind farm development, we simply do not want the strategic location of Fort Drum and their mission readiness capability to be diminished; and
WHEREAS as the major economic engine of the North Country and largest single site employer, the economic vitality of the region and thousands of jobs depend on its continued relevance to the Army mission; and
WHEREAS protecting and enhancing Fort Drum, home to the 10th Mountain Division, is of utmost priority to the Town of Clayton;
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Town Board of the Town of Clayton opposes the industrial wind projects being evaluated by New York State’s Article 10 Siting Board and the Public Service Commission in the immediate proximity to Fort Drum to ensure the national security and continued readiness for future training missions.
