Castleton May Vote On Wind Power Project

08/08/12 1:52PM

In Castleton, town officials are considering a public vote on a commercial wind power project proposed for a prominent ridgeline.

The project, which would run from Grandpa's Knob north through Castleton, West Rutland, Pittsford and Hubbardton, has drawn fire from many local residents.

At a recent select board meeting, Castleton resident John Hale suggested a simple yes-or-no, non-binding vote and the Board said it would consider one on Election Day to measure the sentiment of voters.
