Public hearing Friday January 18, 2008

Public Hearing; Friday, January 18th in Atlanta NY,Town Court Facility19 Main Street at 10am.

Dear Community Members,

Thanks for sending your letters of protest to SCIDA(Steuben County Industrial Development Agency) last week. If you did not do so, we ask you to please reconsider your interest in this issue. We are strong as a community when we stand together! Together we can make an impact.
There is an important meeting coming up on Friday. This is a public meeting that SCIDA is holding to hear our communities concerns over the proposed PILOT(Payment in Lieu of Taxes) program. It is imperative that Naples Central School district taxpayers come; some to speak and many to show support. We need our voices to be heard.Our School District cannot accept $3700 / tax revenue per year in a PILOT program. If each turbine was fully assessed by the dollar value,the amount of money would be far greater. Let's fight to keep our taxes down, and make UPC pay their fair share.
The Wind farm Corporation (UPC) is asking SCIDA for approval to take money from our students. We must stop them by fighting for our schools future and the tax base in our community.
We hope you can attend the SCIDA public hearing on January 18th, at 10am, Town Court Facility, at 19 Main Street, Atlanta.Please reply if you need a ride or would like to car pool.
We must show them that the people of Naples and the Bristol Hills care.Please join us in this attempt for justice and forward this to everyone involved with the Naples School District.
We appreciate your continued support in these efforts.
