Your Action Is Needed
Ethical land use and management practices dictate that solar sites be located in low visibility areas and in low value lands such as brown fields and abandoned commercial properties, as well as industrial corridors. The lands being targeted are highly visible from the designated scenic highway of Route 385, essentially in a picturesque valley, with the Catskill mountains as a backdrop. Two of the parcels are considered fertile farmland surrounded by homes, with the other parcel sited within the village. The property has a high conservation value with habitat for 2 endangered/threatened bird species, wetlands and a natural buffer for extensive wildlife populations.
We are circulating petitions throughout the area to mobilize the sentiment of the community that we do not want this power plant sited here. It is our responsibility to protect and preserve our community from such a large scale project which we believe will profoundly effect both our economy and our ecosystem.
