I predicted at the time of the study's inception that this turbine was simply too big, too expensive and in the wrong place.
Nothing wrong with trying new ideas but it would have changed the character of Butler Farm.
By the way, I am still underwhelmed by how the town has used this property since we bought it over ten years ago. Compare the revitalization of Marion's Camp to the stagnation of the Butler Farm and you get a sense of my frustration.
And I can't even let myself entirely off the hook as I spoke in favor of buying the farm at the town meeting that approved it. I just feel like it should have amounted to more. View Comment
I interviewed Jeff back in 2004 and found him to be one of the most interesting people I ever wrote about.
I revised and updated that article and posted it to the town of Sutton's website at suttonma.org
I think it's well worth your time.
