                                 Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
              Project Description
• Covers approximately 4,500 acres in The Town of the Blue
  Mountains and The Municipality of Grey Highlands.
• Runs from just north of Banks south to about Grey Road 4,
  roughly straddling the 4th line in Blue Mountains and
  Sideroad 30/63 in Grey Highlands.
• Up to 67 tower/turbines structures, each approximately 400
  feet in height.
• Significant related infrastructure, including:
    access roads which can handle approximately 60 ton

     loads
    additional transmission lines (either above or below

     grade)
    substations

                  Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
  The Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition

• Citizens (both local residents and others) who have
  concerns about the impact of the proposed development on
  the Escarpment, the community and economic activity in
  the area.
• Initial concerns were with (i) Recommendation 102 of the
  Ontario Legislative Assembly’s Select Committee on
  Alternative Fuels, and (ii) incompatibility of the proposed
  development with protection for the Escarpment.
• Further principal concerns are with (i) accurate and
  complete information dissemination, and (ii) possible
  elimination of the environmental screening process
  applicable to this project.


                   Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing shall
amend the Planning Act by December 31, 2002 to
apply a provincial standard to zoning for
windfarms/wind turbines and solar energy systems
to make them immune from local municipal
prohibition, and thereby allowed across Ontario “as
of right”.

The Niagara Escarpment Planning and
Development Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.N.2:


Section 2: The purpose of this Act is to
provide for the maintenance of the
Niagara Escarpment and land in its
vicinity substantially as a continuous
natural environment, and to ensure only
such     development    occurs     as  is
compatible with that natural environment.


             Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
Activities of the Coalition to Date


1. Recommendation 102
  For   the     time    being,   this
  recommendation appears to be on the
  Government’s “back burner”.

Activities of the Coalition to Date


2. Niagara Escarpment Protection
  We remain very concerned about this
  issue and SWEI’s continuing efforts to
  have     tower/turbine   installations
  permitted on NEP area lands. We are
  preparing written submissions to both
  the Niagara Escarpment Commission
  and the Coalition on the Niagara
  Escarpment regarding this issue.

4. Environmental Screening Process
   The Ontario Government has proposed increasing
   the environmental screening threshold for
   proposed wind farm developments from the
   current 2 MW level up to 100 MW. If the threshold
   is increased, the proposed Blue Highlands project
   could be freed from any environmental screening
   requirements.      The Coalition opposes the
   proposed threshold increase, and made written
   submissions to the Ministry of Environment before
   the public comment period expired on August 2,
   2003.

5. Georgian Triangle Development Institute
   5th Annual Conference: October 2, 2003.
   The Coalition will speak at the Institute’s
   annual      conference, addressing      the
   proposed Blue Highlands wind farm
   development in the context of the Ontario
   Government’s        “SMART     GROWTH”
   initiative.

              These construction workers are putting the framework in place for pouring the
              concrete base of a turbine. Those huge steel pipes in the background are the
              concrete forms, which are dropped into holes 15 to 25 feet deep and then filled.
              The concrete takes 17-28 days to set.

         “Coming back to this number here, 7,500, I should tell you
         that, like water power, not every wind site is going to get
         developed. There are some nice water power sites in
         Ontario that have higher and better use – canoeing,
         kayaking, tourism viewing, whatever it happens to be.
         Those projects probably shouldn’t be developed for water
         power because there’s a higher and better use. If you’ve
         got a nice community on a ridge line where people from
         Toronto have built $300,000 cottages and you tell them
         that you’re going to put up 50 wind towers on that ridge,
         you’re changing an aspect of their lives that they’ve gotten
         used to, and I’m not suggesting that’s going to happen.
         Unwise developers will pursue those developments.
         Where there’s tight competition for land, they’re going to
         run into problems.”

   Is the “Blue Highlands”
   area the right area for a
   large-scale commercial
   wind farm development?

                  Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
• Unique scenic resource
• Enjoyed by not just private landowners
  but also public (hiking, mountain-biking,
  cross-country skiing, snowmobiling)
• The “Blue Highlands” area, as a
  topographical feature, is a “signature”
  scenic resource (so much so that it forms
  the basis of The Town of the Blue
  Mountains logo).
              Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
• Unique confluence of the Escarpment with
  two significant valleys (i.e. Pretty River and
  Beaver River Valleys)
• Many wetlands
• Unique watershed area
• Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest
  (“ANSI’s”)
• UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve

                Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
• Due to its “remote” location, and due to
  decades of provincial Government
     /Conservation Authority/Grey County-
  level environmental land use planning,
  significant portions of the area are being
  preserved in a natural state (Kolapore
  Highlands, Pretty River Valley Provincial
  Park Reserve, Grey County Forest areas,
  etc.)

               Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition
• Serves as the “eco-tourism” outlet for the
  highly developed area at the base of the
  Mountain in the vicinity of the ski areas
• One of the most heavily traveled portions of
  the Bruce Trail
• Unique “draw” contributing to Grey County
  tourism,     which       contributes      over
  $196,000,000 in economic benefit to the
  County annually

                              POWER BLACKOUT
     1. Last week's blackout problem would have occurred
        regardless of whether the proposed Blue Highlands wind
        farm had been installed.
     2. The proposed Blue Highlands wind farm would have had
        a minor, if any, role in terms of reducing the duration of
        the blackout.
     3. Because the proposed Blue Highlands windfarm will only
        be providing power to the grid generally, there can be no
        certainty (whether in the aftermath of a blackout or in the
        normal course) as to the actual destination to which any
        Blue Highlands wind farm-generated power will be
        delivered for consumption.

     CONTRIBUTION TO TOTAL ELECTRICAL GENERATION

     A 1.8 MW turbine can produce more than 5.2 million kWh in a year

     Source: AWEA FAQ’S

     Therefore, a 100 MW wind farm can produce 289 million kWh in a year.

     Total 1999 Ontario Electricity Generation:

                                   149,858,000,000 kWh

     Source: Ontario Energy Board, 2001

     289 million kWh       =   0.19% of total Ontario electricity generation

               Principles
           Supported by the

    Principle 1:
    The municipal councils of The Town of the Blue
    Mountains and the municipality of Grey
    Highlands should retain zoning and official plan
    control over any proposed commercial wind farm
    development in either municipality. In particular,
    the unique features and established land use
    patterns of the area proposed for the Blue
    Highlands windfarm mean that any such
    development should not be subject to merely a
    province-wide zoning standard.

    Principle 2:
    Any decisions regarding the development of any
    commercial windfarm in The Town of the Blue
    Mountains and/or the municipality of Grey
    Highlands should only be made after full and
    informed and involvement in the development
    process by local residents and other concerned
    citizens.

    Principle 3:
    While responsible wind energy development
    should be supported, large-scale development
    should only be permitted with a very strong level
    of support from local residents living in the
    proposed development area.

    Principle 4:
    Any local wind resource should be regarded as a
    local community resource, and significant efforts
    should be expended to permit a community-
    driven development of the resource so as to
    maximize local community benefits.
