2012.08.01 Joan Gould: Support the wind energy ordinance
Seneca Township Wind Ordinance
There is a ballot question on the Seneca Township August ballot referring to the renewable wind energy ordinance. Section 7.05, Seneca Township Wind Energy Facility Ordinance, states “to protect the health, welfare, safety, and quality of life of the general public.”
This wind ordinance was written by the Seneca Township Planning Commission, because they and their families also live in this township and want the best quality of life available.
The ordinance was recommended by the Region II Planning Commission, and approved by the Lenawee County Planning Commission and the Seneca Township Board.
Each of the above mentioned governmental units are governed by the Michigan Constitution to protect us in our daily lives. Clearly, we want to support the current wind ordinance, because I have done my homework and know my family and I are safe as this ordinance is written.
I have lived in Seneca Township 44 years and during this time have had the privilege and honor of teaching many of the residents, their children and grandchildren.
