COLEBROOK — A citizens’ group appeal of two mini-wind farms in town is moving ahead in court.
A New Britain Superior Court judge upheld the legality of FairwindCT’s appeal this week, according to the group’s lawyer, Nicholas Harding of Hartford. Judge Henry S. Cohn opened a hearing on the case Monday.
The hearing is an opportunity for the judge to ask questions and clarify information he has from the parties involved, Harding said. FairwindCT is opposed to the development of six wind turbines — three on Flagg Hill Road and three others on Rock Hall Road — proposed by BNE Energy of West Hartford. Four Colebrook residents are listed as separate plaintiffs.
