The actor Alec Baldwin wants to put a wind turbine on his property in Amagansett, which would make him the first private resident in town to have one. In a proposal that went before the Town of East Hampton's board last month, Baldwin is seeking to install a 10kW turbine on the edge of his 8-acre Town Lane property, the same make and model as the ones installed on nearby Mahoney and Iacono farms. But, with a maximum height of 131' and the fear this could set a dangerous precident, approval isn't going to be so easy. "What if 400 homes wanted to put up a windmill?" asked Supervisor Bill Wilkinson. Expect raucous public hearings to be scheduled for this controversial idea later this summer. [27 East]
