Procedural Conference, Article 10, Parishville Town Hall 5:00 - 7:00pm

"For example, on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That's the only reason to build them. They don't make sense without the tax credit." 

- Warren Buffet

We are a volunteer group of citizens providing information about the Industrial Wind Farm project that is proposed in Hopkinton and Parishville, NY.

We believe that ALL members of the community should be protected and fully informed when Industrial Wind projects are under consideration. We strongly support the principal of HOME RULE in our New York State Constitution, and insist upon our right to control the future of our towns and counties.

We hope you will join us to educate, communicate and advocate to keep our homes livable, our towns friendly and our future rural. We do not require dues or membership fees. However we do encourage you to sign our petitions, attend public meetings to speak your mind, contact us for yard signs and spread the word to relatives, neighbors and friends.
