Save St. Lucie Alliance targets Palm Beach County attorney to combat FPL project on Hutchinson Island
|HUTCHINSON ISLAND — Public hearings on Florida Power & Light Co.'s wind turbine plan still are months away, but opponents already are gearing up for a serious fight. |
The Save St. Lucie Alliance started a Legal Defense Fund this week in the hopes of hiring a land-use attorney who can represent residents opposed to putting six wind machines on FPL property near the St. Lucie Nuclear Plant. The group had raised $3,600 by Friday and has a goal of raising $10,000, which is the amount they estimate might be needed through a final County Commission hearing on the project.
