Couple stalls wind turbine plans

Just so you know all of the facts this is what the proposed new wind legislation would allow:

* ALLOWS ANY PROPERTY OWNER WITH A LOT SIZE OF .46 ACRE OR LARGER TO INSTALL TWO (2) WIND TURBINES

* EACH TURBINE CAN BE AS TALL AS 120 FEET HIGH

* NO RESTRICTIONS ON DISTANCE FROM NEIGHBORS, EXCEPT A FALL ZONE THE HEIGHT OF THE TURBINE

* NO RESTRICTIONS FOR SCENIC AREAS, SHORELINES AND WILDLIFE

* NO RESTRICTIONS FOR RESIDENTIAL ZONES OR CONCERNS FOR NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER

* NO RESTRICTIONS FOR PLACEMENT ON SHORELINES, WETLAND BUFFERS AND OTHER FRAGILE ECOSYSTEMS

* NO CONCERNS OR RESTRICTIONS FOR CLOSENESS TO WILDLIFE HABITATS, MIGRATORY PATTERNS OR OTHER WILDLIFE IMPACTS. THE ONLY PROVISION IS THAT CONSTRUCTION CAN'T OCCUR DURING THE NESTING SEASON.

* NO NOISE CONCERNS NOR UNDERSTANDING OF NOISE DECIBEL LEVELS, LOW FREQUENCY NOISE AND VIBRATION - ALL SIGNIFICANT AND DANGEROUS EFFECTS OF WIND TURBINES.

* NO SAFETY REQUIREMENTS ON THE EQUIPMENT.

Is this really what we want in this community?" Sep 29, 10 7:29 AM

Call the Town Supervisor's office and ask for a copy of the proposed legislation. You'll see that this is exactly what is being proposed. The bulk of this was presented at a town board work session about a month ago.

In terms of the wetlands you are absolutely right but I have fears that if we are going to rely exclusively on the DEC and the Conservation Board it is very risky. The DEC is getting ready to lose 200 employees - was just announced. Surely some of them are going to be in enforcement. And the conservation board - well surely you'd agree that there are plenty of examples where people have ignore their rulings (in fact the applicant for the Shinnecock Hills Urban Wind Turbine is one of them - it was cited by Marty Sheas in a public hearing). I for one want a clear statement of what will be allowed versus not allowed instead of dumping it into conservation every time." Oct 1, 10 10:09 AM

Tuckahoe Superintendent Would Rent District-Owned Home Following $95,000 Renovations

Once again the taxpayers in Tuckahoe are getting the shaft by the board. They never saw an unnecessary expenditure that they didn't want to make. It's time to get rid of these ridiculous little districts out here and come up with fiscal sanity. " Dec 7, 10 7:09 AM

Watch out now. If Grisnik is true to form he'll find a way to do this joy anyway even though the just got squashed in the election. That's what happened with the Fire Department which he was head of." Dec 22, 10 7:04 AM

Details Of Tuckahoe Road Reroute Proposal Emerge Amid Community Outcry At Work Session

Let's get real. There is no safety issues here. The only time someone ever got hurt was when some drunk guy froze to death in the course's parking lot in the middle of a snowstorm.

This is a made up problem for rich people to further do whatever they want in this town. Unfortunately Jay has never seen a road change that he didn't like. But Jay wake up - just because they want it doesn't mean that they should get it. And how dare they try to buy the town's approval. Town Board. If you take this bribe they I guess we have finally proven how much pay for play goes on in Town Hall." Aug 4, 16 6:42 PM

As a not for profit all of the Shinnecock Clubs's tax filings are publicly available on the internet. Go look. https://projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/

Go check them out. Really interesting. According to them the total value of their land and buildings in 2014 was $ 473,000. You can't buy a shack in this area for that much money yet hundreds of acres, a giant clubhouse, other buildings and all those other improvement are worth so little? Want to rip off communities? Start a golf club." Aug 6, 16 8:43 AM
