The Planning Board Straight Jacket

It may be crazy but the Planning Board is only going to discuss three issues: setbacks, abutter notices and peer review consultants.
 
They will not be discussing As-of-right zoning.
 
They will not be discussing if we should have many or none of the Large Wind Turbines.
 
They will not be discussing flicker or noise or vibrations or wildlife concerns, etc.
 
It may be that some members love Large wind turbines, others hate them.      It doesn’t matter, it is not on the table for discussion.
 
The best way to help the board is to send a tightly reasoned letter explaining what would be preferred on each issue.     Period.
 
Other than that, you will be wasting your time and unnecessarily dragging out their time.       Keeping them too long never wins friends!
 
My advice is to show up but be quiet, regardless of your opinion.     Your simple presence will speak volunes.
