On November 22, 2016, Kathleen Leyden, head of the Maine Coastal Program, responded to Friends of Penobscot Bay's Freedom of Access Act request for documents pertaining to the floating offshore wind turbines proposed for off Monhegan. of Part 2 Specifically for: "Public records in custody of you or your staff dating from April 1, 2016 to November 14, 2016 that pertain to the Maine Aquaventus /Volturnus floating ocean wind turbines project, slated to occupy the Maine Offshore Wind Test Center. (FOPB letter is page 34)
Much ado about trying to tweak the rules to make the state offshore wind test center into a permanent windpower site - which it certainly was not intended to be!
Also a bit of groaning about opposition from Protect Monhegan folks.
