NIYFY! Twin Peaks NIMBYs Say Hell No to Miraloma Park Man’s Dream of a Front Yard Wind Turbine

Dude wants to put a Skystream 3.7 windmill turbine in his front yard on windblown Teresita Boulevard*, but area NIMBYs are having none of that. They’re saying Not In Your Front Yard. The whole concept “irks” them, you dig? It’s stiring up debate is what it’s doing.

Comes now the San Francisco Coalition of NIMBYhoods to rain on one Nathan Miller’s parade. They’re basically calling him stupid here:

Whereas existing turbine windmills were not designed for residential City use, and exceed in height and width the appropriate scale for a San Francisco residential neighborhood and delivering only a fraction of the promised power because sufficient vertical and horizontal clearance is impossible in nearly all residential neighborhoods in San Francisco;”

Why would anyone want to live in an area with such emotional no-nothings in charge of things?

Anywho, here’s what backyard windmills look like these days:

Oh well. A complete list of the windmill-haters making up one of the hundreds of coalitions about town, after the jump.

The fact is, this friction
Will only be worn by persistence
Leave out conditions
Courageous convictions
Will drag the dream into existence

*Fell is just a “street” with four lanes in one direction, but single-lane Teresita, which winds it’s way through the bucolic suburbs of the 415, is a “boulevard.” Go figure.

Switch off the mind and let the heart decide
who you were meant to be
Flick to remote and let the body glide
There is no enemy !
Etch out a future of your own design
Well tailored to your needs
Then fan the flame and keep the dream alive
Of a continent
A continent a continent a continent a -
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

There is no enemy !
Switch of the mind and let the heart decide
We’re a continent
A continent a continent a continent a -

Shatter the lens and grind it into sand
One measured exposure
Scatter the seed and furrow in our land
The future is roses! Roses!
Switch off the mind and let the heart decide
There is no enemy!
Lift up the hearts of this your only tribe
We’re a continent
A continent a continent a continent a
