Government decisions on turbines, nursing homes don’t allow do-overs

Posted 1 February 2017 at 9:24 am

Editor:

In a previous letter, I described the twenty-something percent devaluation of a home that occurred in Cohocton once word of a wind turbine operation became public there. It was anecdotal, but not something I dreamed up. A realtor listing the sale in nearby Naples was my source.

Once you decide 600-foot-high wind turbines in Barre were not such a good idea after all, of what use will the Cohocton example be to you? Should you decide living in rural Orleans County is no longer what it used to be, and you wish to sell and move, moving may be the less painful part. Will those 550-foot-high turbines mean more potential buyers, or fewer? A better selling price for you, or the buyer?

Just as with the County Nursing Home, the visiting nurse certification, the Continuing Day Treatment Program, Arnold Gregory Hospital, the Behavioral Health Unit at Medina Hospital, the siting of Wal-Mart, or a new stone quarry adjacent to The Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge in Shelby, once the decision is made, it is made—past tense.

Once a collection of towering wind turbines is okayed, it is over.  There will be no do-overs.

Sincerely yours,

Gary Kent
