The following is a letter to the editor where the author expresses his thoughts and findings in regards to property values. All of us should encourage our councils to protect our equity.
Letter to the editor:
I wish to share with you and the citizens of Huron East the information I have found recently regarding wind turbines and their effect on property values. Of course when contacting Veresen Inc (St Columban’s proponents) with this concern-they stated that they didn’t EXPECT any effect on my property value and they proceeded to send me a study that was supposed to reassure me of this. Upon further investigation-the study merely dealt with farmland (it doesn’t take an expert to know that it has gone up everywhere in the last several years). It made no mention of rural residential property.
