The Vineyard Haven Public Library evening lecture series will present a public information session on the proposed Cape Wind project on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Katherine Cornell Theatre on Spring street in Vineyard Haven.
Mark Rodgers of Cape Wind, the project proponent, and Audra Parker of the Alliance to Save Nantucket Sound, a group that opposes the project, will discuss the proposed wind farm, which would consist of 130 wind turbines on Horseshoe Shoal. Judy Crawford will moderate the session.
The session is designed to explore the many implications of the project. The discussion will begin by stepping back and examining the big picture: What do we need and why do we need it?
Session sponsors say they hope the presentations and discussion will help participants come to an informed opinion about the project and its possible role in our region’s future.
More information about the topic can be found on the Cape Wind’s Web site, capewind.org; the Alliance’s Web site, saveoursound.org; and the Web site of the Minerals Management Services, mms.gov.
