Public meeting in PEC on Dec. 5 — property values near wind turbines

CCSAGE is bringing property appraisal expert Ben Lansink to the County for a public information meeting at the Waring House on Wed. Dec. 5, 7 to 9 pm.

Ben has recently completed and released two professional studies of the impact of wind turbines on nearby property values in two areas of Ontario, showing an average loss of 35%.  You can read a newspaper article about the first study here.

Ben will present his findings to date and then take questions from attendees.

Ben Lansink, AACI, P.App, MRICS, is a London-based professional appraiser, with 35  years of experience, who specializes in Diminution in Value analyses.  He has been accepted as an expert witness in many courts and boards.  You can view his CV here.

This topic is important to all County residents, but critical to South Marysburgh and Athol families due to the large number of turbines proposed by wpd Canada and other developers in South County.

Available seating space is limited, so please arrive early.  Admission is free, but a donation to help defray costs would be welcome.
