August 2017 Column - Installing turbines near Air Reserve Station puts region at risk

The Erie County Legislature held our final session before recess on July 27 and dealt with an issue that is important to our entire region but many of you may not be aware of. My colleagues unanimously approved a resolution that I sponsored in support of the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station. We are asking New York State to request a formal review by the Department of Defense related to a proposal by APEX Clean Energy to construct 70 wind turbines along the shores of Lake Ontario that would potentially reach 600 feet high. The proposal is concerning due to its proximity to the air base, and as such the Niagara Military Affairs Council (NIMAC) has expressed its opposition.
