There are no active watches, warnings or advisories

To The Editor:

A monster-sized wind turbine at Cape Cod Community College within the Olde King's Highway Historic District is inappropriate. Such a monstrosity at that venue would be a tremendous community eyesore. A wind turbine will cause noise pollution and flickering shadows. It would negatively impact local bird populations. It will cause a detrimental reduction in local property values.

This colossal blight would be an affront to the historic nature and unique cultural heritage of the Barnstable and West Barnstable villages. This unsightly structure will forever disfigure the village countryside. The rustic scenery of the Olde King's Highway Historic District should be left untouched in its natural form. Industrialization of the area is not in its best interest. Furthermore, the wind turbine will be noisy, and can generate the same level of noise as a family car traveling at 70 mph. Finally, the huge blades pose a danger to area birds of prey such as hawks, turkey vultures as well as other various birds. Many birds will be instantly killed because the spinning blades of the turbine will not be seen very well.

I vigorously urge the Olde King's Highway Historic District Commission to deny the request for the wind turbine.
