In Manchester, voters hold off on wind project

Residents of Manchester are putting off a decision on a wind project proposed for Little Equinox mountain.

At Town Meeting on Saturday, a question that asked if the town should support the installation of wind turbines on the mountain was deemed too vague.

Select Board member Michael Kilburn said the nonbinding question was put on the ballot after town officials were told a small, temporary wind research project was being proposed for the mountain. In 2006, the town voted to oppose a larger wind project that has yet to come to fruition.
