Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
we are in the last stages of new zoning rules here. The current draft will allow 'small-scale' wind turbines in most zones, but there is organized resistance. You may know that the Gorge per se is a National Scenic Area. Personally, I think that wind turbines are a wonderful aesthetic, but there's a sizable minority that does not.

We also have very reactive - not proactive - local 'leadership'. Another of my major projects is to change that situation this November.
