Any information on the project like:
 - How much power will it produce?
 - How many turbines?
 - Who is funding the project?

I haven't been watching the news so any information would be great.

To keep this relevant I'll add AirVideo for those with iPhones or iPads. Windows Media, QuickTime, RealPlayer and others are insanely bloated compared to the simple playback and functionality of a free VLC or a cheap AirVideo for playback and streaming.

I'm not sure how many ever saw the Original Transformers animated movie from the 80's, but if you have kids that like the current ones, you should show them this classic. Olson Welles and Leonard Nemoy voice acted in it.

Mike, I love your movie taste. Redford in The Natural was great.

Open Office is great if you don't need Excel or Outlook. I used it for a year or so. Google docs is decent for some things but nothing replaces the smooth options of Office.

I would agree for the most part. I could do without the comedy that seems to be coming into the MI series.

Skippy, I understand what you're saying about not being able to attend meetings or get to the office to view materials. I've brought these issues up at meetings and the Selectboard is working with residents to develop a Town website to help get this information out.

To answer you questions:

The violations are posted in the Town Office. The building is not overly expensive for new construction of a municipal building. Right now the estimates as far as I know came from qualified town members who work in construction and were estimating based on very fine details so I have no doubt that it is the best quality to last and save long term dollars. Final design will determine materials and cost. I'm familiar with renovation cost construction in Burlington costing over $200,000 per unit for building, land and rehab. This project is extremely reasonable in design and could have easily cost more with options that some towns have.

I haven't seen a lot of detail on the code violations but being new to town, the office design and layout is not setup for an expanding town. The limited parking, internal layout and conference rooms just don't meet any needs I can see. I understand that the schools parking could be used, as well as function space, but the Town should have its own space to use that meet the growing needs.

I know $1.4 million is a lot of money, but a commercial building is being developed, not a single family home and there are many increased needs to accommodate including accessibility, a comfortable workplace for staff and a place for the community to meet and work together.
