Thank you!

Thank you to the residents and property owners who responded to the Planning Board survey on the potential industrial wind facility coming to Dorchester. We received 193 responses as follows: 149 - Opposed industrial wind; 39 - Support industrial wind; 5 - Undecided/no opinion

Receiving such a clear message on the majority preference of the townspeople will be very helpful to the Town going forward. The Planning Board and Select Board will continue to keep Dorchester residents, voters, and property owners informed as the situation unfolds. If you know of individuals without computer access, who would like to receive information by phone, please contact the Select Board at or the Planning Board Secretary Beth Weick at
