CCNS Asserts Legal Standing to Appeal Building Permits, Turbine Siting

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

At a Wellfleet Forum on the wind turbine project on March 1, 2010, CCNS Superintendent George Price, Jr., stated that the Seashore believes it would have legal standing to seek court review of a turbine siting decision on municipal property within the Seashore boundaries, just as it believes it does to appeal the Wellfleet Zoning Board’s approval of the Blasch LLC building permit.

Price had noted the CCNS’ missions of preserving the Seashore’s resources and conserving energy.  Specific projects, such as the turbine proposal, would be examined in light of these goals.  He will review U.S. Park Service analyses of this proposal and its effects on resources in forming the Seashore’s position on it.
