Savoy Rejects Wind Turbine Building Permit; Developer Plans Appeal
The Berkshire Eagle reports time is of the essence for Minuteman Wind LLC, as developers work against the odds to keep the project alive and what the company sees as missteps by the town.
On April 2, nine days before a renewed special permit was to expire, Minuteman Wind filed an application for a building permit for a 7.5-megawatt installation of turbines on West Hill, near the Hawley line.
Before the week was out, Savoy's building inspector swatted down the application, faulting it for lacking required information. However, there is a 30-day appeals period which will most likely give the project one last shot.
