Greenland Ridge Purchased!

Apr
28

Keep It Grand is pleased to announce that Flagstaff Mountain and Greenland Ridge have been purchased by David and Lynette Snow, Jr. of Darien, CT from Haynes Timberlands.

The transfer of ownership constitutes an abrupt and welcome change of course for the highlands overlooking East Grand Lake, which have been targeted for a major industrial wind power grid. Under the new ownership, wind turbines will no longer threaten the spectacular beauty of this border lake, shared by neighbors from Maine and New Brunswick.
