Residents continue to question aspects of Snowy Ridge and Settlers Landing projects during public meetings in Bethany and Pontypool

More than three years after Manvers residents first learned their hillsides could house three wind turbine projects, opponents are still waiting for answers to their concerns.
Area residents attended two more public consultation meetings – one in Bethany on Jan. 10 and the other in Pontypool on Jan. 11 – in search of answers and to, once again, hammer home their message that wind turbines are not welcome.
“I think they’ve [the company] gotten a very good handle on how the community feels,” said Heather Stauble, a concerned resident and the area’s City of Kawartha Lakes City councillor. “The company has grossly underestimated the people. When we started, people didn’t understand the scale and the potential effects [of wind turbines]. Anyone who lives within the project areas can now tell you all about them.”
