The members of this organization value the Allegheny Front as an unspoiled natural resource. This resource is in danger of being lost to federally subsidized industrialization by means of the erection of 18 wind turbine electric generators, called the Lookout Windpower LLC project. We feel that this will negatively effect the quality of life enjoyed by the residents of Southern Somerset County, visitors, tourists, travelers, and wildlife who value this resource. We also feel that the consequences of this project have not been fully evaluated. Our intent is to raise public awareness of this potential loss, and to encourage the authorities and agencies with jurisdiction to halt this project by instituting siting regulations to protect our ridge.
