It’s a moral imperative to save our planet by protecting the environment. We must all make this a priority if we want our planet to survive.

This view is as much a part of Altamont as the houses and the shops. Please don’t lose this piece of heaven on earth.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We need solar farms to combat climate change, but we also need to be smart about siting them and making sure our towns are prepared for decommissioning them when they reach end of life or if the companies that install them fail and abandon them.

Charles Klaer:
I want to thank Jeff Perlee for part one of his soon two part column on the history of the settlement of the hill towns above and communites below the Helderbergs which turn out to be six times older than Mount Everest. https://altamontenterprise.com/01292020/view-helderbergs-attracted-european-pioneers-1700s-and-wealthy-albanians-1800s. I also want to thank James Gaughan for reminding us of the protections the Town of Guilderland's current Comprehensive Plan which includes the Rural Guilderland Plan component provide to the Heldeberg Escarpament view shed and the farm lands and rural view sheds and open spaces of the valley below; protections repeated in the Zoning Law which require that all land use decisions must be "in accordance with the comprehensive plan before a decision can be considered a "permitted use" or a "special use" by the Planning Board or Zoning Board https://altamontenterprise.com/01292020/decision-solar-farm-points-out-flaws-guilderlands-planning-process. As someone who is fortunate to live in a late 1700's or early 1800's home mention in Jeff Perlee's column with a panoraminc view of Helderbergs and the Black Creek flood plain. I have an AllSun Solar tracking array, and am encouraged that aesthetically placed Solar Farms and vertical axis wind turbines will be important green energy sources, once we pause to create a community concensus deciding where they can be locates without destroying Rural Guilderland and its viewsheds and open spaces and farms.
