Broome County Concerned Residents, Inc. is a grassroots citizens group 

formed in March 2019 to address the health, safety and welfare of the Town of Sanford and Town of Windsor taxpayers and residents regarding the issue of permitting Bluestone Wind Project to build 33 industrial wind turbines in these rural towns. Concerns include sound and flicker emitting from the turbines 24 hours a day, change to the rural nature of the area with the addition of industrial wind turbines, potential health risks, and the effect on wildlife, local businesses, property values and tourism.
