This year the Legislature created a process that allows residents in the Unorganized Territory (UT) to remove themselves from the so-called "Expedited Area" where wind development is essentially a rubber stamp transaction. If you live in the UT, you only have six months to avail yourself of this opportunity. After June of 2016, you will lose the chance.
Removing your township, plantation or some part of it is not a guaranteed wind-killer, but if a wind developer comes seeking to industrialize your newly Unexpedited Area, it will have to go through a zoning process where you have a fair chance to protect yourself and your property.
You've watched the dozens of cities and towns in Maine write wind ordinances to protect themselves, while you've also watched helplessly as the UT gets overrun by massive wind complexes.
If you want to make this change in your township or plantation, it isn't very difficult or expensive, but FMM suggests that you look into it right away. FMM has made arrangements with an experienced attorney who is ready to guide you through this process at a reasonable cost.
