The answer is blowing in
the wind – or at least to TownMeeting.
That’s where proponents of wind power in Duxbury hopethey’ll be able to pass a bylawallowing the use of wind tur
-
bines in town.
Last year, the topic came
before town meeting but waspassed over after discussion.Members of the AlternativeEnergy Committee are now
considering streamlining the
bylaw, dropping a provision
that dealt with small-scale
privately-owned turbines andfocusing on larger, municipalwind facilities.The committee held a joint
meeting with the PlanningBoard and the Zoning Board
of Appeals Monday evening togather some initial feedback.“At Town Meeting we hada bylaw that probably wasn’tfully vetted,” said AlternativeEnergy Chairman Frank Dug
-gan, adding that a last minute
attempt to amend the bylaw onTown Meeting oor may haveconfused voters.

Local ofcials are gettinginvolved in a statewide move
-
ment to repeal the state’s af 
-
fordable housing law known
as 40B.
Planning Board Chair
-
woman Amy MacNab was in
-
volved in a similar effort two
years ago. She along with other
other planning board membersfrom around the state signed a
petition to repeal the 40B law,
also called the “anti-snob”zoning act because it allowsdevelopers to skirt local zon
-
ing regulations if a portion of units built are designated “af 
-
fordable.”“How can we plan for ourtown’s future if the future isour of our town’s control?”MacNab and other board mem
-
bers wrote in a 2002 letter.“Certainly planning boardsacross the Commonwealththink 40B bypasses our localrules and regs,” said MacNabon Monday. “It’s [the petition]the culmination of a lot of ef 
-
forts over the years ... Just totalfrustration on a local level.”MacNab actually gave tes
-
timony before the state legisla
-ture on the topic in 2003.
“[We] sought statutoryreform not because Duxbury
or any other city or town are
snobs and oppose affordablehousing,” she said at the time.“But rather, because the com
-
prehensive permit statute ispunitive, regressive and pitsaffordable housing develop
-ment against all other munici-pal needs and concerns ... 40B
is an embarrassment to a civi
-
lized Commonwealth.MacNab feels more con
-
dent about the effort this
time around. She said twoyears ago, the group collected
 just enough signatures to geta question on the ballot, butmany of the signatures werethrown out, leaving the num
-
ber short of the 75,000 needed.
This time, the petitioners are
shooting for 100,000, just tobe on the safe side.
Signature collectors are
trying to reach that goal byNov. 9. MacNab said she andother Duxbury residents, likeKay Foster of the WildlandsTrust, have been pounding thepavement to spread their mes
-sage.
“This time the effort isdenitely more coordinated,”MacNab said. “There’s a greatgroup of people leading this ef 
-
fort ... I think we have a goodchance at this.”
To learn more or to sign
the petition, call MacNab at781-934-2305 or Foster at781-934-6502, or visit re
-peal40B.com.
