A 40-turbine wind farm electric generation project in Hopkinton and Parishville that could power as many as 24,000 homes is moving forward despite five years of seeming inactivity. The 100-megawatt North Ridge Wind Farm is moving up on Iberdrola Renewables’ development list, however, the project is still years from completion and no firm start date has been given by project officials.

Would you support a wind farm in your community?

Take the NCNow Survery

Results will be posted Monday, June 27.


A downtown whitewater park, campgrounds along the Grasse River, and more local fishing sites could bring more visitors and economic vitality to the community, according to Canton’s economic developers. It would be a low-impact whitewater park, maybe with a wading pool on shore, all “family-friendly in keeping with the need to provide something downtown for people who want to get into the water.

Do you believe this development will help improve the North Country economy?
