Wind farm hurt quality of life

November 16, 2012
Daily Press


I was stunned to read the Garden Township newsletter and the review of the Heritage Wind Farm Estimate of tax revenue.

It's no secret that I have been strongly opposed to this project and now that the turbines are built, my worst fears are realized.

Unfortunately for me I stare down all 13 turbines from what used to be my beautiful Garden Bay shoreline. I knew the turbines would destroy my view but I did not anticipate that I would also be able to hear their annoying and ever constant roar

To now see the estimated $95,000 reduction in turbine tax revenue (over 15 years) baffles my mind on how this all could have happened and what was gained?

Unfortunately for me and my neighbors, our quality of life and home values have plummeted.

But to all those who may face "phase 2 and phase 3; come on over and sit in my yard on a nice summer day and look and listen to the buzz saw before you too have to suffer the same fate.

I always enjoyed Garden and considered it my home. I can only hope that someday I can go back in my yard and enjoy the view and listen to the silence.
