Subject: [cayugabirds-l] URGENT ALERT: Dodge Rd Spruce Woods may be cut down for massive Solar Farm on Dodge rd, STARTING in APRIL !!
There is urgent need for lovers of birds and wildlife along Dodge Rd. to
be aware of imminent developments along Dodge Rd.

The massive industrial scale solar farm proposed in all the Cornell
owned fields along Dodge Rd and Stevenson Rd (as well as Turkey Hill
Rd.) is planning to start construction in a few weeks. There was a
hearing in Dryden last Thursday at which many residents spoke out
against the massive scale of the project which will devastate wildlife
habitat.

We have just learned this morning from a member of the Dryden
Conservation Board that they are proposing to cut down the Spruce Woods
bordering the WEST side of Dodge Rd. because they will shadow the panels
slated to go right along the very edge of Dodge R. next to a
(barbed-wire topped) fence!

If you are concerned about this assault and the effect of replacing all
the grassland in the fields with sod under the panels (and
herbicides???), please write immediately to the Dryden Town Board and
ATTEND THE PLANNING BOARD MEETING scheduled on THIS Thursday March 23,
at 7pm at the Dryden Town Hall on Main Street.

Please express your opinion that may help reduce the scale of this
commercial operation that will devastate wildlife in this favorite
location for viewing wildlife!

Nari & Gin Mistry

Ellis Hollow rd.
