Siting Council hears pleas

PROSPECT — Supporters and opponents of Wind Prospect finally got their chance to plead their case before the Siting Council.
The Connecticut Siting Council came to Prospect last week to get a first-hand look at the site for two proposed wind turbines off of Kluge Road.

“This gives us an idea what’s here-wetlands, vistas-all those things that anyone would consider just looking at the land itself,” said
Daniel Caruso, chairman of the council, following a walk through of the site Feb. 23.

Dozens of people, including neighbors opposed to the project holding signs, greeted the council as they pulled down Kluge Road and made the trek with them through snow and mud for a look at where the proposed turbines will stand.
