Hikers and conservationists are voicing their opposition to a plan to build four wind turbines nearly 500 feet tall on North Twin Mountain in Roxbury, Maine.

According to an article on SunJournal.com, 25 people recently attended a public meeting on the proposal. Many of the people were from the Mahoosuc Land Trust based in Bethel, Maine.

Area residents’ primary concern was that Roxwind LLC’s towers would be only 2.4 miles from Whitecap Mountain, a popular hiking spot in Rumford, and spoil the 360-degree view from the summit.
