On Thursday, October 22, a site visit was organized for Town representatives to view the work completed to date. Tim Derouche and Rodney "Bing" Cross from the Board of Selectmen attended the site visit. They visited the site from Horseshoe Valley Road up to the top of North Twin - meeting with individuals from the construction and development team as well as the future operator of the project.
Below are some pictures from that day.

ROXBURY — Selectmen and a few residents learned Tuesday evening that a wind power developer wants to put three turbines atop North Twin Mountain.
Bob Patton, the principal of Lower Falls Consulting in Falmouth, said the mountain has the potential for a small wind power site. He said a group will go before the Roxbury Planning Board to get a permit to erect a meteorological tower to assess wind resources atop the mountain.
He said the three turbines would be built on North Twin, which is on the south side of Route 120 off Horseshoe Valley Road and northeast of Black Mountain Ski Area in Rumford.
Another man with Patton, John Richardson, introduced himself as a lawyer with Moncure & Barnicle in Topsham. He was a gubernatorial candidate in 2010, commissioner of the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development between 2007-2009, and served as a Maine legislator for Brunswick between 1998 through 2006.
