Do we want the North Coast to look like Xibin?
The coast line around Qian Shui Wan (Cafe Street) Sanzhi and Baishawan is a precious resource, a green gem of rural Taiwan, the way it used to be, and amazingly close to Taipei. A new cycle track that links Baishawan with Danshui is almost completed, allowing Taipei residents greater access and enjoyment of the area.
HOWEVER, a large multi national company is proposing to build a line of giant wind turbines along the coast here. They gained the first permit, with almost none of the locals being made aware of the plan.
There is much documented evidence of the harm that these turbines do to the immediate environment, in addition to detracting from the natural scenery and creating noise pollution which will negatively affect the local inhabitants, and beach and cycle track visitors.
The locals of Sanzhi are petitioning the government to prevent the wind turbines being built here.
On Sunday 5th June, the relevant government departments are meeting with the wind turbine company, locals, environmental groups and other interested parties, to decide the future of the area. Please, if you care about these things, love the North Coast, and have the time to spare, come along to the public meeting and take this chance to register your views.
