Study Finds Wind Farm Would Be Bad News For Collingwood Airport

Could jeopardize future investment

An economic impact study on the future of the Collingwood Regional Airport suggests a proposed wind farm near the facility would not bode well. The study, conducted for the City of Collingwood and Clearview Township, found there would be a significant negative impact on airport operations, and could jeopardize proposed or future investment in the airport and the entire region.  The study has been passed to the Ministry of Environment which will determine whether it is in the public interest to issue the approvals for the wind turbine project.
