Doug Walter started this petition to Chautauqua County Legislature and Town of Portland

EWT Wind company is attempting to put 326 foot Wind turbines in our Town. Our Town board is at this time re-doing our outdated wind ordinance.  Right now they can place a turbine as close as 1200 ft to a residence under the old ordinance which is unacceptable. They say they are shorter then the 500 foot turbines in our neighboring Town of Arkwright, that may be true, but they are still too big and to close . People have the right to do what they want on their own property, but not at the expense of their neighbors , this is why we have Ordinances.

Our residents want to keep our town like it should be, beautiful views of Lake Erie, rolling hills and Grape vineyards. We are not saying we are anti-wind, we just want an ordinance that protects the health, safety and welfare of our residents. Proper setbacks of a mile from property lines, 35 -40 dba lmax acoustical limit from property lines 24/7, property value Guarantee and adequate decommissioning terms.

There are so many negative impacts due to wind turbines I.e. shadow flicker , infrasound, property value decline, health problems, killing of bats and birds , sleep deprivation . the list goes on and on, these are just a few negative impacts.

Please support our fight to protect our beautiful Town.  Once we let one wind company in more will follow.
