Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Rolling Upland’s Proposed Industrial Wind Complex
The entire document is 881 pages, so we’ve split it up into individual sections to make it more reader friendly. First read the Executive Summary to get an overview. Then pick an issue that you can relate to and go to that section. Make notes that can help you write a comment letter. Think about your own living experience, work expertise, hobby expertise (birding, hunting, hiking etc.). Everyone has a right to comment. This will have regional impact, not just on Madison and Hamilton. If you want to download the entire 881-page document, it is at the end of the list below. It is a 76 MB file.

The Planning Board will accept written comments on the DGEIS until 5:00 pm on May 18, 2012. Written comments will be given the same consideration as any oral comments made at the public hearing. Please submit written comments to:
Town of Madison Planning Board
P.O. Box 66
Madison, NY 13402

We suggest you send your comments by Certified Mail with Return Receipt Requested.
