    What do you think. This has been a huge controversy in these parts.
    I thought they looked really cool, atually - we saw a lot in mountains between here and Freemont. . . so cool I took pictures.


    they were a bit distracting, though - they'd spin at odd intervals and made the entire hillside look like it was moving - disorientating almost . .. but if you saw it all the time you'd get use to it and just block it out.

    as long as their property is not infringed on, it's too bad their view is obstructed but oh well.

    Re: How do you feel about homeowners protesting electric generating wind turbines?

    Well, honestly - I think it has a heavy factor in this.

    People MOVE to certain areas purely based on the view from their doorstep - location location location. If their view was originally obstructed by these wind turbines they likely might not have moved there. By putting up the turbines they are completely tanking the appeal of the location and likely deterring future inhabitants from wanting to live there.

    But at what point does one's unobstructed view weigh in when ti comes to a view that could possibly span for miles and miles?

    Well person A wants a great view and person B wants clean energy. So I agree that the business should of both informed the neighborhood of the plans (of course they wouldnt because it would impede progess) or moved the turbines to a remote area. But regardless, Person A doesnt have any room to complain about there view "tarnished" of course its unforunate, but so is your neighbor painting his house pink with blue poka dots....

    To me it sounds like a classic legal issue - neighbor VS business . . . to court, judgment, settled forever.

    Possibly yes. Seems like properly zoned section lines should settle that before hand. But once the settlement is declared, wheres the line drawn? Can anything that is in my view that I dont like be court worthy?

    Wind turbines? Wouldn't that mess up our hair? I'm against those air bags in cars, too.

    LOL - I'd hate to burst your old, wrinkled bubble which is your most prized possession.
    But, no, they won't mess up your hair

    Good answer. I think I'll vote other too. I sympathize with their being pissed, but the other property owner also has rights. Also, we need energy and the complainers use it too.

    Personally, I think people get too hung up on views, but different strokes for different folks. I also think this wind turbines look cool. They don't put them terrible close together.
