Members of the Lookout Mountain Wind Project Task Force (LMWPTF) have presented 549 signed petitions in opposition of the potential development of an Industrial Scale Wind Turbine Farm on Lookout Mountain by Iberdrola Renewables, a Spanish Company.
Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters and Walker County Commissioner Bebe Heiskell received the petitions from Pam Vias and Carl McCleskey of the LMWPTF.
The 549 petitions were gathered online or manually in the last 36 days.
The petition states opposition “to the industrialization of Lookout Mountain, a populated residential mountain supporting residents, retirees, camps, tourists, recreation, national parks, wildlife, bats, bird life and unparalleled vistas. Lookout Mountain is not an inappropriate location for a large-scale industrial wind turbine complex.”
In signing the petition, the parties “register their strong objections to the Lookout Mountain proposed industrial wind farm development.”
