BANGOR — A Clifton couple is going to court to try and block a wind farm from being built near their flower farm.

Peter and Julie Beckford says in their complaint filed at Penobscot County Superior Court that town officials in Clifton erred in granting Pisgah Mountain LLC a permit for construction of a $25 million five-turbine wind facility.

They are asking that the court rule on several issues they raised and send the matter back to the planning board for additional findings of fact and “a decision consistent with this court’s holding.”

The Beckfords say the wind farm would harm their health, happiness and quality of life.

Pisgah Mountain LLC already has all local permitting. Partner Paul Fuller tells the Bangor Daily News (http://bit.ly/GFYLKg) the legal action is “unfortunate.”
