Newark Neighbors United Mission Statement

NNU was formed by individuals opposed to the Seneca Mountain industrial wind project proposal. We are a diverse and independent group of neighbors with a common and unified goal, which is to protect the health and wellbeing of our citizens, preserve the environmental integrity of our beautiful mountain ridgelines, and ensure the preservation of our unique town and the Northeast Kingdom.

"The area also contains a vast amount of valuable natural resources – undeveloped lake and stream shorelines, scenic mountains, rare and endangered species and abundant wildlife.  The outdoor enthusiast is presented with hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, biking and snowmobiling, as well as excellent opportunities for hunting, fishing and camping.  Many of these resources will be important to future generations such as vast quantities of fresh drinking water, millions of trees to help balance greenhouse gases, and large areas of undeveloped land for recreation and wildlife habitat."
