Wind Project Appeal Could Come In Days
We’ll know within days whether or not the town of Savoy’s official “no” to a commercial wind power project is the last word.
The Berkshire Eagle reported in July that the town’s Zoning Board of Appeals rejected a request from Minuteman Wind LLC to let the company move forward with a plan to erect five turbines on West Hill.
Under state law, anyone "aggrieved" by this type of vote can appeal further, either to the Massachusetts Land Court or to a superior or district court, depending on the county involved.
The project, more than a decade in the making, needed the ZBA to overturn a building inspector’s April decision to deny Minuteman a building permit.
